Kerang Lakes

Lake Charm

Lake Charm township is situated on the Murray Valley Highway, 16kms north of Kerang. Visitors are well catered for with a modern information shelter and caravan park, with summer bringing the area to life with holiday makers seeking sun, water and fun.

The lake itself is just east of the township and is a popular location for water sports including swimming, waterskiing, bird watching, fishing, sailing and kayaking. Lake Charm regularly hosts the Victorian Ski Racing titles as well as Victorian point score events. Competitors come from all over Australia and overseas to compete in the events.

With two modern caravan parks located on the lake foreshore, beautiful picnicking and day facilities, Lake Charm is an ideal summer holiday destination. The waterways around Lake Charm are a haven for birdlife during times of flood and fishing is always very popular, with redfin in plentiful supply, and even the occasional cod. In spring, the Redfin Fishing Classic is an attraction for anglers.

It's Summer in the Gannawarra

Kangaroo Lake

Kangaroo Lake is of historical note for ‘Gorton Drive’, named after former Australian Prime Minister Sir John Gorton, who was born here in 1911. The lake, just west of the township of Lake Charm, is well-known for fishing and water sports with the caravan park right on the lake foreshore. The north end of the lake is popular for day visitors with grass and shaded picnic spots and suitable for swimming, kayaking and fishing. As one of the largest and deepest of the lakes, it’s also great for waterskiing. The west side of the lake is bordered by residences and vineyards with the grapes destined for Brown Brothers’ wines.

Lake Meran

Lake Meran is a picturesque freshwater lake on the northern end of Leaghur Forest. Being a natural lake, it is prone to seasonal fluctuations and currently suitable for swimming and kayaking. The lake has white sandy beaches and is surrounded by healthy red gums. Lake Meran is a popular place over summer for camping, swimming, or simply relaxing in the lovely natural surrounds. Kayaks and canoes are popular here too.

Each lake has a boat ramp to allow easy access to the water.

There are many other lakes within the Kerang Lakes system which are significant environmental wetlands and are internationally recognised under the Ramsar Convention.
