Violet Town is the midway town on the Hume Freeway, that prior to the freeway was a vibrant country town. The reduced traffic has produced  the not unexpected downturn. That said, there is a clearly visible community pride at work that is giving the place a point of difference.

Violet Town has connections with Australian rock music - during the 1980s.

It is located on the Honeysuckle Creek and has many streets named after flowers. On the second Saturday of each month it hosts a vibrant community market.

The town became well-known in 1969 as the site of the Spirit of Progress crash.

Violet Town has named all streets after flowers.

The Violet Town hotels are in the main street.

The Violet Town Catholic Church has a great ‘on entry’ profile.

The Violet Town War Memorial and gates are near the sports park.

Violet Town is a great town and a coffee spot or a refreshment location if the timing is right
