Elphinstone is a rural village on the Calder Highway and on the railway line from Melbourne to Bendigo. The railway line diverges from the Calder Highway at Elphinstone and follows the Pyrenees Highway to Castlemaine before rejoining the Calder Highway to Bendigo. Elphinstone has thus been a minor railhead for the carriage of agricultural produce brought from the west (Castlemaine) and from the east (Metcalfe and Sutton Grange). It is 12 km south-east of Castlemaine.
