Maffra, a rural town in East Gippsland, is 180 km east of Melbourne and 20 km north of Sale. It is on the Macalister River, which is dammed upstream at Lake Glenmaggie, and is the centre for a large irrigated dairy industry.

Maffra was part of the Boisdale pastoral run taken up by Angus McMillan, on behalf of Lachlan Macalister in 1840. McMillan had the Bushy Park run to the east, separated from Boisdale by the Avon River.
