Invergordon, a dairying and orcharding area in north-central Victoria, is 30 km north-east of Shepparton.

The area originally was part of Dunbulbalane, and the Dunbulbalane West school was opened in 1878, two years after a Wesleyan church was built at Dunbulbalane.

The school’s name was changed to Invergordon in 1895, the inspiration for the name probably being Invergordon in Scotland. Farming was unassisted by irrigation.
