Welcome to the Gooram Valley Website
Whether you're a visitor, a Gooram resident or just curious, this is where you can discover information about the Gooram area and its scenic and dramatic landscape and its also where all sorts of information about the Gooram Valley Landcare group, the Gooram Fire Brigade and other aspects of life in Gooram can be found. It is hoped that a pictorial archive of Gooram’s history will be added in the near future and that over time this will evolve into a comprehensive photographic and documentary rescourse detailing the history of the area and its people.
The Gooram Valley is an area in Victoria’s Strathbogie Ranges, located 180 kilometers from Melbourne in the north central part of the state. Gooram is predominately a rural community, consisting mainly of residential farmland and areas of state forest although more recently a number of residences on small, non-farming holdings have become a feature of the community as well. There is a CFA station attached to the Gooram Soldiers’ Memorial Hall located in Sargoods Road but otherwise no public or commercial buildings exist at Gooram. The nearest major town is Euroa, about 16 kilometers away.
The Gooram area is characterised by dramatic granite ridges and outcrops and fertile valleys with undulating land, and large numbers of graceful mature trees, some hundreds of years old. Several creeks, the best-known of which is the Seven Creeks, run through the Gooram area; after rain the usually sedate Gooram Falls become a wild and impressive feature of the Strathbogie ranges.
