Ellinbank is a farming district in the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges, about 11 km south of Warragul and about 113 km east of Melbourne.

Settlers traversed the densely forested hills from 1874, reaching their blocks via a bridle track from Drouin to the north. Originally called Warragul South, the district became known as Ellinbank because the first post office was at a property named Ellen Bank after the settler’s first wife.
