Waanyarra is a locality in north central Victoria, Australia. The locality is in the Shire of Loddon, 178 kilometres (111 mi) north west of the state capital, Melbourne and 39 kilometres (24 mi) west of Bendigo.

Originally an small township existed here which arose due to the discovery of gold. Commencing in the 1860s, the township supported 2 hotels, several stores, a school and a post office, which remained open until the 1920s. Nothing now remains other than foundations, an old cemetery and recreation reserve.

At the 2021 census, Waanyarra had a population of 57.[1]
