The farming district of Sarsfield lies about 13 km north-east of Bairnsdale in East Gippsland. The Nicholson River flows from north to south through the fertile valley and the Omeo Highway passes through the area.

The Sarsfield district was part of the territory of the Brabralung tribe but by 1840, when Angus McMillan crossed the Nicholson River, their numbers had already dwindled. Lucknow pastoral run claimed the area west of the river in 1842 and Mibost run the area east of the river in 1855.
