town, central Victoria, Australia, on the Campaspe River, about 50 miles (85 km) northwest of Melbourne.

Kyneton is the service centre for an area producing wool, beef, dairy products, oats, wheat, and potatoes. There are abattoirs, knitting and timber mills, engineering works, and dairy factories in the town. Kyneton is a summer tourist resort, offering fishing and other sports, and is noted for its bluestone buildings, which have been classified by Australia's National Trust. Pop. (2006) 5,905.
