Evansford is a rural village in central-west Victoria about 25 km south-west of Maryborough and between Lexton and Clunes.

The origin of the name is uncertain. Authorities surmise that the name Evans was a local property owner or a local parliamentarian who represented the Maryborough area. The ‘ford’ part of the name may have arisen from a crossing place on Stony Creek which runs through Evansford.
