Poowong, a rural town in the western Strzelecki Ranges, is 30 km south of Drouin and 95 km south-east of Melbourne. It lies at the junction of a trail cut from Lang Lang into Gippsland and another cut south from Drouin. McDonalds Track (1862) was an access route that was very influential in having settlers traverse the Strzelecki Ranges. According to Bunce's Language of the Aborigines of the Colony of Victoria (1859), Poowong is an Aboriginal word meaning carrion.
