The Loddon Valley Highway runs roughly north-west from Bendigo to Kerang on the Murray Valley Highway. Previously assigned State Route 141, it was later designated as B260.

After passing through the hills around Bendigo and Eaglehawk, the highway joins the Loddon River at Serpentine, then follows along the east side of that river all the way to Kerang.

The Loddon Valley Highway constitutes part of the direct route from Melbourne to the popular Murray River holiday areas around Swan Hill.
