Anakie, a rural village on a road between Geelong and Bacchus Marsh, is 35 km north-west of Geelong and 80 km west of central Melbourne. It is in the foothills of the Brisbane Ranges, which contain three hills known as the Anakies, as well as Mount Anakie. It is thought that the name derived from the Aboriginal words Anakie Youang, meaning little hill.
