Derrinallum is a rural township on the Hamilton Highway, western Victoria, 11 km west of Lismore. It was named after a pastoral run (1839) and the name is thought to have been derived from an Aboriginal word describing a prominent nearby hill, Mount Elephant, or a species of tern which inhabited salt marshes in the area. (Mount Elephant is a spectacular volcanic cone, 2 km south-west of Derrinallum and 393 metres above sea level).
