Postcode: 3635

Wunghnu is a town in the Goulburn Valley region of northern Victoria, Australia. The town is located in the Moira Shire Local government area, 204 kilometres north of the state capital, Melbourne and has a population of 239.

The town is noted for its canoe trees; Grey box eucalypts that were stripped of bark by the indigenous inhabitants to construct watercraft. The scars on these stripped trees can be seen in the town common bushland reserve, bordering the Goulburn Valley Highway, the main throughway through town.

Wunghnu is pronounced “one-ewe” and is therefore the subject of jokes professing it to be the smallest sheep station in the world.
