Dunneworthy is a district located approximately 16 kilometres (10 mi) North East of the town of Ararat, Victoria, Australia. When surveyed in the 1850s there were plans for a sizeable township and a railway station was built. Development never eventuated and today the district is home to approximately 100 people.

The largest property in the area was named after the district ("Dunneworthy"), when it was split from the original Woodlands run that comprised practically all the land west of Ararat.

To the west is the Dunneworthy State Forest

Playing in the Victorian competition, the Dunneworthy Touch Club are named after the district.
