Woods Point is a tourist and gold mining township in the Great Dividing Range. It lies 120 kilometres east-north-east of Melbourne and is a three hour drive by road. It is situated at the extreme headwaters of the Goulburn River on the northern side of the range.
The township was named Woods Point in April 1863 after storekeeper Mabille Wood, who went prospecting one day and never returned.
