Strzelecki is a rural locality in eastern Victoria, situated in hilly country 12 km north-east of Korumburra. It was named after Paul de Strzelecki, a Polish explorer and scientist who travelled through Gippsland, from the upper Murray area to Western Port Bay, in 1840. (Strzelecki’s route was marked by historic memorials in 1927, one being built at Korumburra.  A replotting of Strzelecki’s journey in 1990 indicated that his route was several kilometres north of Korumburra, and hence quite close to the present locality of Strzelecki.)
