Tempy is a rural village on the Sunraysia Highway and railway line to Mildura in north-west Victoria. The nearest town is Ouyen, 32 km northwards.

Both the settlement and its name arose from the construction of the railway line in 1903. The fettlers’ camp became a temporary stopping place for the delivery of supplies, and the sign ‘Temp’y Stopping Station’ was shortened to Tempy.
