Panmure is a rural village in western Victoria on the Princes Highway and South Western railway (1890), 22 km north-east of Warrnambool. Panmure is located where the Warrnambool Road (Princes Highway) forded Mount Emu Creek, a long waterway flowing from near Beaufort to the Hopkins River. It was named after Lord Panmure, English Secretary for War in 1855. Panmure was described in Bailliere’s Victorian gazetteer (1865) as a roadside village situated in thickly timbered country with rich black soil.
