Kilmore is a town in Victoria, Australia, 60 kilometres by the Hume Freeway and the Northern Highway north of Melbourne and is 370 metres above sea level.
In 1841 a land speculator, William Rutledge bought an estate of 21 square kilometres and named it for his birthplace Kilmore in County Cavan, Ireland.
Kilmore is the oldest inland town in Victoria and was a convenient stop over for many during the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s.
