Carrajung is a rural locality in south Gippsland, 23 km north of Yarram and 165 km south-east of Melbourne. The locality comprises three villages or settlements - Carrajung, Carrajung South and Carrajung Lower. Carrajung is separated from the other two by a steep ridge and is situated in hilly country. The area has occasional snow falls. The name Carrajung is thought to have been derived from an Aboriginal word meaning a fishing line or a shade tree.
