Casterton is located along the Glenelg River in Victoria, approximately 42 kilometres east of the South Australian border.

Casterton is famous for being the birthplace of the Kelpie, a working dog breed that originated in the early 1870s at the Warrock Homestead. The town celebrates its connection with the Kelpie by holding the Casterton Kelpie Muster each year and has also developed a walking trail that showcases 5 unique sculptures that depict the life and times of the Kelpie.
