Lake Rowan is a locality in northern Victoria, Australia. It is in the local government area of the Shire of Moira. The locality is named for "Lake Rowan"—a reserve with a dry swamp.

It is said[weasel words] that Ned Kelly used local resident Mr. Swanhill to sell his horses in October 1877.[1] Lake Rowan post office opened on 1 July 1875 and was closed on 30 November 1981.[2] The town has a cemetery (first burial 1870's) with former Geelong and Carlton (Premiership Player) Jim Flynn (1871–1955) interred.
