The small township of Nar Nar Goon is situated on the Gippsland railway line, about 63 km east of Melbourne. In the early 1860s the coach road from Melbourne was extended into Gippsland, winding through the foothills close to the route of the Princes Freeway. A hotel, the Limerick Arms, was established on the coach road, north-east of the present town.
In 1877 construction of the railway from Melbourne into Gippsland was completed; when a railway station was established in 1881, it was named Nar Nar Goon, supposedly an Aboriginal expression meaning native bear.
