Cudgewa, a rural village in north-east Victoria, is about 45 km east of Lake Hume. The nearest large town is Corryong, 11 km to the east of Cudgewa.

In 1837 a New South Wales pastoralist took up the Cudgewa pastoral run, adjoining the west side of the Cudgewa Creek which flows north-east to the Murray River. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing a kangaroo skin.
