Clarendon is a rural village on the Midland Highway, 20 km south-east of Ballarat. Clarendon was originally known as Corduroy Bridge.  The name Clarendon was adopted in 1857 when village lots were first sold. Clarendon was several kilometres distant from the goldfields, and its undulating country was interspersed with fertile valleys which were well suited to farming. Still suitable for farming today, Clarendon is a scenic area for families to live with the nearest place being Enfield approx 16km away. Clarendon is located 90 km west of Melbourne.
