Buckrabanyule is a rural district on the railway line from Bendigo to Charlton, 15 km east of Charlton. Its name is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal expression meaning the middle hill of three ranges or hills.

Buckrabanyule is often linked with Barrakee, a district between it and Charlton. The first school in the area was opened at Barakee in 1877, but carried the name Buckrabanyule until 1882.
