Visiting Dederang North East Victoria
Nestled in the Kiewa Valley just 50kms towards the Snowy Mountains, lies the tiny township of Dederang. For years Hollywood megastar Mel Gibson used this valley hideaway to recharge his batteries.
The Kiewa River, which runs through the valley, provides some of the most challenging and rewarding trout fishing in the region. Annually in the New Year, Dederang hosts a picnic race meeting on a track where the horses momentarily disappear from the crowd’s view.
Anglers and scenic sightseers, however, are warned to keep a wary eye out in the early morning and evening for the dairy herds making their way to the milking sheds.
