Information

Arcadia, a pastoral and agricultural district and a former village, is situated on the Goulburn River, and is 12 km north-east of Murchison. The village was on the Goulburn Valley railway line.

The name came from the Arcadia pastoral run (1839) of about 32,400 ha, on the Goulburn and Broken Rivers. The run was presumably named after Arcadia in Greece, a place with plentiful pasture and water.

The village at the height of its activity, probably around 1910, had two stores, a hotel (delicensed in the 1940s), wine shop, butter factory, butcher, bootmaker, blacksmith, Anglican, Presbyterian and Catholic churches and a railway station. A hall was built in 1926. Scarcely any of these remained in the 1980s.

Today Arcadia is within the Greater City of Shepparton LGA in the Goulburn Valley, an irrigated fruit and vegetable production district.
