Discover an unspoilt region of natural wonders, rich in gold and farming history AND only one hour drive from Bendigo.

The region is mainly unspoilt and can offer visitors an experience in unhurried holidaying whether this is for an extended stay or a brief visit.

Our towns still bear authentic streetscapes from the gold rush era and our State Parks are still in their natural state. The Loddon Tourism Area can offer a base for visiting large areas of Central and Northern Victoria, and can be easily reached by road from Melbourne, Bendigo or Mildura via the Calder Highway, or from Echuca and the other Murray River towns via the Loddon Valley Highway. The roads within the region are generally quiet and provide easy peaceful driving. Public transport also services most of the towns within the region.

Recreational facilities are abounding across the Shire. Sporting options for the visitor include golf, water skiing, lawn bowls bushwalking, tennis and fishing. You may wish to browse through local shops or visit wineries and museums."
