Our Parish

Ouyen developed around a railway station, which was established in 1906 after the Melbourne to Mildura line was built. Blocks in the area were sold in 1910 and cleared for sheep, wheat, barley and oat production.  The parish of Ouyen was established in 1922.

Ouyen is a transport and service centre for a vast area occupied by agricultural and pastoral properties and the sixth largest livestock exchange centre in Victoria
