Eddington is a small rural township on the Loddon River, 22 km north-west of Maryborough and 12 km east of Dunolly. The Laanecoorie Reservoir (1890) is north of the township.

It is thought that the place was named after Captain John Eddington who settled there for a few years after 1838. (The longer term pastoralists who pioneered the district were the Simsons, who are remembered by a locality name and Simsons Ranges to the south).
