Violet Town discovered by ABC's 'Back Roads'

Tuesday, 9 January, 2018

ABC’s ‘Back Roads’ program sees Heather Ewart explore the Back Roads of Australia, uncovering remarkable country towns and inspiring local people.

Heather and the ‘Back Roads’ crew made the trip to Violet Town to put together an episode which will wrap up their third season, going to air on Monday 29 January.

There is no town more inspiring and charming than Violet Town, a small community with a huge character, located in the Strathbogie Shire, just two hours from Melbourne.

Violet Town is renowned for its monthly market. Founded in 1978, the premier market takes place on the second Saturday of the month, with over 250 stalls of regional produce, plants, handmade arts and crafts and more.

Mayor Amanda McClaren said the program is an exciting opportunity for the town and region.

“I have no doubt viewers will fall in love with Violet Town and its beautiful community,” Cr McClaren said.

“Council is optimistic about increased visitation to Violet Town and the region as a result of this media exposure.”
