Bylands is a locality 50 km north of Melbourne on the Northern Highway, formerly the Hume Highway. It is about midway between Wallan and Kilmore.

The origin of the name is unclear. The name was given to an electoral division (1865), a parish and to the Bylands and Glenburnie Road Board, which was absorbed into Kilmore shire in 1874 after a life of 10 years.
