Loddon Valley

Spend the day in the genuine little country towns of the Loddon Valley. Shop for vintage wares, learn about the region’s once-burgeoning eucalyptus oil industry, visit the farm gates, wineries and country bakeries and unwind in Victoria’s backyard.

The Loddon River is a favourite for fishing, swimming and water skiing, Mount Kooyoora has great camping, picnic and hiking facilities - and an unsurpassed view over the plains. Learn about the rich indigenous history here, not to mention the bush rangers!

Must Do List:
• Launch your boat in the Loddon River at Bridgewater

• Lose time in the antique and collectable shops of Inglewood.

• See the amazing collection at Wedderburn’s community-run General Store Museum.

• Buy pure eucalyptus oil from a local distillery

• Visit the Simply Tomatoes farm gate in Boort for great food and country hospitality
