Redbank, a rural village on the eastern slopes of the Pyrenees range in central-west Victoria, is on the Sunraysia highway, 22 km north-west of Avoca.

A gold discovery at Redbank in 1860 resulted in a rush of about 2000 people, and a town was surveyed in 1861. The origin of the name is uncertain, but it possibly described a mine earthworks or something similar. There is red clay soil.
