Freeburgh, a rural locality in north-east Victoria, is situated on the Ovens River 8 km south-east of Bright.

The discovery of gold in the Ovens Valley in 1852 resulted in mines at Bright by 1856. The Mount Orient mine ran eastwards towards Freeburgh. It is thought that German miners bestowed the name Freeburgh, probably derived from Freiburg. (The locality of Germantown is between Bright and Freeburgh.)
