Buckland comprised a series of gold-mining settlements along the Buckland River in north-east Victoria. The settlements were spread over about 30 km of the Buckland Valley, the most northerly being Brookside, 8 km south-west of Bright.

The river was named after Thomas Buckland, pastoralist, who occupied a pastoral station near the headwaters of the Buckland and Ovens Rivers in 1845. The Buckland River rises near Mount Selwyn, enters a valley which skirts the eastern edge of the Mount Buffalo plateau and enters the Ovens River just west of Porepunkah.
