Lorquon is a rural locality in north-west Victoria, near the northern limit of the Wimmera district. It is 22 km north-east of Nhill and 20 km west of Jeparit.

Lorquon was the name of a pastoral run taken up in 1851, and it is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing a crab hole or water hole. The Bequon (origin of ‘Loquon’) waterhole was the basis for the pastoral run.
