Early 20th century architecture in the Shepparton area is diverse, and the extent and range of buildings demonstrate that this period represents a coming of age for the region. A number of buildings from this time were designed by Melbourne architects, and the sophistication of their designs is of note. The smaller Bungalows also offer distinction in their own right.
