Living in a community where there are many other families from your part of the world is a highly appreciated aspect of being in the Goulburn Valley, says Melly Singh of the local Sikh Community
Melly Singh was originally intending to settle in Melbourne. He came to Shepparton to get his driving licence, and liked what he saw. He was to return soon after, to settle with his family and remain.
The Sikh Community in the Goulburn Valley comprises 100+ families, who, Melly Singh shares, find the local agrarian economy not unlike that of the Punjab in North India, where many Sikhs who have migrated hail from.
