"A Town Stuck In Time"

When I arrived in Seymour, I was playing my music loud in my car. I was pulled over and asked to turn it down as such kind of debockery was forbidden. I knew I had to alter this towns cultural norms. I had to bring back music and dancing. I stood my ground firmly, and took the town back with the power of music and dance. Whilst I have restored the towns faith in music and dance, I will not be returning in the near future or ever for that matter.

"Nice little town, beware Anzac Ave"

Great town in the middle of Victoria. With new land estates popping up, Nagambie and vineyards on its doorstep, how long before this becomes part of the high growth areas?

"Dull"

The town is boring. All the food places , from maccas,kfc to private food shops are crap. The food here is terrible. Nothing to do and crims from other places come here to live and start trouble here. I can hardly wait to shift out. Good luck with finding a rental that takes pets. We had to rent a dump because we had pets.

"Great Town"

I have Been Traveling to Seymour for the Past 30 Years and I find it one of the Nicest Town there is, its perfect for someone who wants to be close to Melbourne CBD but who also like the Country Lifestyle & shopping is great you can get everything you need, The New School is Fantastic its nice and Modern, The property Market is still affordable so you can buy a nice property and still afford to live

Great for

  • Great local perks on the river, perfect for barbecues and picnics
  • Great schools, including highschool and special school
  • Relaxed country living
  • Sporting clubs for kids

Not great for

  • Need a Bunnings Big W & a Kmart

"Great place to move too!"

Seymour has loads to offer, especially for the people that love a country lifestyle with relax living and a short drive to any major city in Victoria.
Seymour is Victoria's centre with a short train ride to Melbourne CBD in 1hr. There some really nice areas to live just out of seymour also with job opportunies in horses, agriculture, farming, puckapunyal defence jobs, trades.
One only down point is NO land available to build new housing on. Seymour is a great place to live.

Great for

  • Relaxed country living
  • Sporting clubs for kids
  • Short distance to other towns, city!
  • Great local perks on the river, perfect for barbecues and picnics
  • Great schools, including highschool and special school
  • Local nightclubs such as the terminus and prince of wales hotels, that run until 2 am on week ends

Not great for

  • No land to buy to build on

In response to the cons: We now have new land estates with large blocks and affordable pricing. See A Little Birdie Told Me for land information for Addelston Estate, Redbank Rise and others that are coming in the very near future!

"Seymour, a great place to grow up."

Working through every issue that arises, Seymour is becoming a more and more prosperous town with ever improving schools and facilities.The job opportunities that Seymour has to offer help young people to move into the workforce from an early age, gaining experience and skill as they complete their education throughout the local schools, while the nursing homes and retirement villiages offer a well maintained and competently staffed choice for the elderly. although parts of seymour do often have a higher drug and alcohol problem, these areas are far from dangerous and tend to be far from the hustle and bustle of the towns center (tips to avoid most of monash street though mitchel court and immediate surrounds).

Great for

  • Great schools, including highschool and special school
  • Great local perks on the river, perfect for barbecues and picnics
  • Local nightclubs such as the terminus and prince of wales hotels, that run until 2 am on week ends

Not great for

  • Small issues with local racism, although non-violent
  • Rental housing shortage

"Very handy town"

As other raters have mentioned, Seymour is close to everything, Melbourne, Shepp, Bendigo except for the beach. Howver there are plenty of beautiful waterways around Seymour itself and it is a 20min drive to Lake Nagambie. Not many places to shop, but certainly better than your average country town. Good phone reception and wireless internet. It is cheap to live, safe in most parts (there are a few seedy places - but that goes for everywhere). It has good access to the hospital, schools, and has several pubs. Beautiful walking tracks that you usually have to yourself. The only thing it is missing is more variety in radio stations!

"An hour to everything - go fishing after school"

Seymour is a town that has the Goulburn Rivers running through the middle with great parks and walking tracks and heaps of bush land on your door step and 4x4 drives just up the road.
You can drive for and hour in the city and get 10kms or you can drive a hour from Seymour and get to Melbourne, Shepparton, Benalla, Bendigo, Mt Bulla and heaps of small country towns.

You can let your kids walk down the street without being worried and they wont be hanging out in the shopping center carparks, then you can take them fishing after school.

The Seymour Cup in Oct is huge and a great day out, so is the farming Expo in Feb. Very busy book a motel early.

Seymour is somewhere you can have a big country block to let your kids run free, been know when you walk down the street, you can do your shopping at Coles, Safeway, IGA, Target, Aldi and heaps of small stores, but still work in the city if you want and then come home after a long day and go for a walk or a fish ijn the Goulburn River.

Come and see the bigger picture of Seymour but make sure you have a good drive around and down the back streets, your find heaps of little secrets.

"clean air, stable weather and cool to warm summer nights = excellent"

a developing town/city central to all other regional centres in victoria.
the weather is excellent with relatively stable weather and it rarely has the extremes of summer and winter.
people are friendly and it is very hospitable.
real estate prices have grown and remained stable with multi national franchises like subway and mc donalds recently opening outlets.
on the arts
/culture front it has a strong arts society and within the past year seymour performing arts centre was completed.
I moved here 8 years ago it was the best move i made.
