Scotsburn
Victoria

Mount Buninyong
Postcode: 3352
Location:
LGA: Shire of Moorabool
State District: Ballarat East
Federal Division: Ballarat

Scotsburn is a town in Victoria, Australia. The town is approximately 16 km from Ballarat on the Midland Highway toward Geelong.

Located at the foot of Mt Buninyong, it was named after the Scott family which settled in the area around 1840. Andrew and Celia Scott, who arrived in Australia in 1839, established a cattle farm of 16,000 acres (65 km²). After a period of growing potatoes during 1841-42 during poor financial times, in 1843 the Scott family began to run sheep. The Scott family also purchased property in the western district of Victoria and in New South Wales with some members of the family moving to run sheep on new stations. Over time various sections of of the original farm were sold to new farmers in the district.

In 1876 the first school was opened, known for a short time as Burnt Hill State School (State School number 2176). Four years later the school was renamed Scotts Marsh and in 1889 it was again renamed, this time to Scotsburn. The school is now an annexe of Buningyong Primary School.

In 1880 the post office was opened and remained so until the second half of 20th century until it closure upon which it became a private residence. In 1884 the Scotsburn Union Churn was formed, with an acre of land donated by Andrew Scott. The same church structure remains and still hold regular services.

In 1891 the Scotsburn Hall was built, funded by donations and land donated by the Eason family. Since its establishment it has been utilised by the local primary school, the Scotsburn Tennis Club, and local residents for various functions.
