Dederang is a little rural town on the Kiewa Valley Highway in North East Victoria. Early settlers came to Dederang from Kergunyah and the main road, Dederang to Tawonga was opened between 1860 - 1864. With its long farming history, its sweeping green spaces and open farming lands continue to attract those wanting a country lifestyle away from it all.
Though quiet, Dederang kicks up a gear every year with the Dederang Picnic Race Club meeting in February for the Dederang Cup. Golfers enjoy the Dederang Golf Club on the Kiewa Valley Highway and locals have an Australian Rules football team with neighbouring township Mount Beauty (DMB Football Club) which competes in the Tallangatta & District Football League. The DMB Netball (Dederang Mount Beauty Netball Club) join forces for some exciting netball. If bowls are more your pace the Dederang Bowls Club has you covered for your sporting and social past-time. The Dederang & District Trail Riding Club is also established for those keen equestrian enthusiasts.
Dederang is a popular trout fishing destination and the Dederang Hotel is the local gathering place on the weekends. Out front is the impressive sculpture by Kerrie Hay-Smith titled ‘Storyteller’ inspired by Banjo Patterson’s poem “The Daylight is Dying”.
Dederang has a local store for supplies, a public Primary School for the kids and the Dederang Recreation Reserve is available for some park playtime; although this is the kind of place you’ll be drawn to your dream of getting some chickens and goats! Dederang is your perfect rural retreat to a quiet country community life, just 25 minutes to Mount Beauty and 30 minutes from Albury.
