Larpent is a rural locality on the Princes Highway and railway line, 8 km west of Colac in western Victoria. It was named after the English ship 'Larpent' which brought settlers to the area in 1849. The settlers had been recruited by Dr John Dunmore Lang, in one of his emigration schemes. The land where they settled was known as Lang's Larpent Section.
