As it is one of the biggest events of the year, Shepparton gets booked out very quickly, however neighboruing towns like Moroopna, Tatura, Kialla, Nagambie and Euroa are good options.

AirBnb and Stayz are also good options.

It will be difficult for teams to all book at the same venue, so it is advised that looking for single rooms may provide better results.
