Kerang - Cities, Towns and Localities
The rural town of Kerang is located on the Lodden River just 25 km inland from the Murray River. With over 55 lakes, swamps and lagoons that stretch from Kerang to Lake Boga in the north, the area is popular for those seeking aquatic activities, from water sports, boating and fishing.

The lagoons and lakes around Kerang is home to a great number of water birds, including the Ibis with its well known rookeries, the largest ibis rookery in the world. So it is no surprise that Kerang's symbol is the flying ibis. So abundant is the birdlife that the area is an ornithologist and photographers paradise.

Check out our listing of Kerang accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
