Glenrowan is a rural locality and township on the route between Melbourne and Albury. It is 184 km north-east of Melbourne and 14 km before Wangaratta.

Motorists on the old Hume Highway and train travellers pass through the township, but the Hume Freeway bypasses it (1988). Glenrowan was named after pioneer pastoralists James and George Rowan who occupied pastoral stations between 1846 and 1858 in the area between Winton and Glenrowan.
