Narracan is a rural locality in eastern Victoria 14 km south of Moe. It was named after the Narracan Creek, and the word is thought to have been derived from an Aboriginal word describing a crow.

The name Narracan has been applied to Narracan South, now Darlimurla, about 15 km away and to the Narracan Valley coal mine (1880s), renamed Coalville in 1887. It was also the name of a large shire (1878-1994).
