Erica is a village 30 km north of Moe and 135 km east of Melbourne.

In the 1860s gold had been found at Walhalla, further into the mountains. From the early 1900s, selectors were attracted to the area and established market gardens on the fertile red soil to supply Walhalla with produce. The district became known as Moondarra, and the area around present Erica as Upper Moondarra.
