The Loddon River flows from the Great Dividing Range in the south to the River Murray in the north. Tullaroop Creek is the main tributary in the upper Loddon River system. The middle section of the Loddon River is characterised by many distributary streams and anabranches that carry water away from the river onto the floodplain. The lower Loddon River is joined by Pyramid Creek at Kerang, at which point the Loddon becomes part of the River Murray floodplain.
The Loddon River continues to be an important place for Traditional Owners and their Nations. The Registered Aboriginal Party (RAP) in the region is the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation. Representatives from Dja Dja Wurrung, Barapa Barapa and Wamba Wemba Traditional Owners were engaged during the preparation of the Loddon system seasonal watering proposals.
