Panmure is a small town in the south west of Victoria, Australia. It has a population of approximately 300. The township was established in the 1850s. Timbercutters came to the area to harvest the river redgum, stringybark and messmate trees, which were transported by bullock teams to nearby sawmills.

Today, the town has a pub, a general store/post office, a Primary School and sporting facilities that host cricket, football, and netball clubs.

The Mt Emu Creek runs through the town, and forms a nice swimming hole known as the “hole” or the “big hole”. Adjacent to the swimming hole in the Recreation Reserve is a natural spring that is of cultural significance to the local indigenous community.
