Harcourt is a rural township on the Calder Highway and the railway line from Melbourne to Bendigo. It is 9 km north-east of Castlemaine and on the western side of the Mount Alexander range. To the east of the town is Barkers Creek, a stream which flows towards Castlemaine and which was the site of much easily won alluvial gold during gold rushes in 1851-52.
