Kingower, formerly a gold-mining town, is a village 12 km south-west of Inglewood and 45 km west of Bendigo. It is not on any arterial road, and is on the south-eastern edge of the Kooyoora National Park in which lie several of Kingower’s gold leads.

Kingower was named after the Kingower pastoral run (1843), and the name was probably derived from an Aboriginal word which referred to a yam endemic to the area.
