Places nearby Dederang


Dederang nestles in the picturesque Kiewa Valley, about half an hour south of Albury-Wodonga on the Bright route to the Victorian snowfields.

The Kiewa River, which runs through the valley, provides some of the most challenging and rewarding trout fishing in the region.

Anglers and scenic sightseers, however, are warned to keep a wary eye out in the early morning and evening for dairy herds making their way to the milking sheds.

Hollywood megastar Mel Gibson once used to recharge his batteries in this valley hideaway. Dederang packs the visitors in with its annual New Year's Day picnic races which are held on a track where the horses momentarily disappear from the crowd's view

Even more popular is the once-a-year competition to decide Australia's gumboot-throwing champion.

The Falls Creek ski resort lies 35km into the Snowy Mountains from Mount Beauty at the head of the valley which Dederang also shares with the townships of Kergunyah, Gundowring and Tawonga.
