Barraport is a rural locality 13 km north-west of Boort in north-western Victoria, on the railway line from Boort to Robinvale.

Originally named Barrapoort, the second syllable of the name was derived from Boort. The first syllable is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal word meaning bit. The change from Barrapoort to Barraport came about when the railway station name was formalised.
