Drummond North is a small town in the Shire of Hepburn, Victoria, Australia. The town is mainly a wine-growing and livestock region. Back Creek, a tributary of the Coliban River, runs through the town, creating a 30-degree hill. It is really less of a town and more of a dispersed community. Native wildlife includes kangaroos which are plentiful in number. Drummond North Post Office opened on 1 April 1885 and closed in 1956.[2] At the 2016 census, Drummond North had a population of 187.[1]
