Winter is a quiet time in the Gannawarra. The agricultural shows and waterskiing competitions take a break, allowing us to focus on activities involving the local community. Our famed markets in Murrabit, Cohuna and Kerang mean you have three opportunities a month to enjoy a morning out buying local and fresh produce, plants, crafts and more.
The Central Murray Football Netball League is in top gear through winter, with fierce rivalries between local clubs fought out in Aussie Rules football and netball. Watch powerhouse footy clubs like the Cohuna Kangas and Kerang, or cheer on underdogs like Koondrook Barham. Enjoy a fun day out, share a sausage and a drink with passionate locals, and relive the action at the local with a counter meal.
Plan your visit to take part in the friendly fun of the Kerang Turf Club's horse racing, held twice a year on Easter Saturday and Boxing Day. We host arts performances, Quambatook Silo Cinema and sports tournaments around the Shire throughout the year.
Ski Racing Victoria holds a number of adrenalin-filled events through the year at Lake Charm including the Victorian State Titles.
Monthly markets include the long-running Murrabit Country Market, the Kerang Community Market and the boutique offerings at the Cohuna Farmers and Makers Market.
Fitness fans can register and race against the clock at free weekly Parkrun events in Cohuna and Kerang, 8am Saturdays.
