Gobur, a farming locality and village, is 97 km north-east of Melbourne and 26 km north of Alexandra. The name comes from Gobur Creek and the Gobur pastoral run (c1845) occupied by Henry Godfrey. Gobur is possibly a corruption of an Aboriginal word for kookaburra. Henry Godfrey is commemorated in the name of the creek on which the township was situated.
