Elmore is a small town in Central Victoria, Australia with a lot of history. It was first settled by Europeans in the 1840s and officially became a town in the 1850s. It was named after Elmore Estate. The gold rush of the 1850s brought many people to the area and helped make Elmore and the surrounding towns grow and become prosperous.

Elmore is located in the Loddon Shire and is halfway between Bendigo and Echuca, and 200 km northwest of Melbourne. It has about 1000 residents. One fun attraction in Elmore is the Rural Discovery Centre – Campaspe Run. It is a great way to learn about the history of farming in the area through interactive displays and exhibits.
