Bordered by the Murray river to the north, Gannawarra Shire is approximately three hours from Melbourne and around one hour from the neighbouring centres of Swan Hill, Echuca and Bendigo.
Gannawarra Shire is a diverse landscape of lakes and rivers, red gum forests, irrigated agriculture and dryland farming. The magnificent natural landscapes and Mediterranean-style climate make it ideal for agriculture and outdoor recreation.
Gannawarra’s population is spread across a number of communities, each with a unique identity. Primary centres are Kerang, Cohuna and Koondrook. Smaller outlying communities include Leitchville, Quambatook, Murrabit, Lake Charm, Lalbert and Mystic Park.
