Henty Highway[2] is a 360 kilometre highway in western Victoria, Australia. It's primarily a north-south route, and consists of a mix of 2 laned country highway standard and 4 lane arterial road within some of the larger towns along the route. The highway formerly ran all the way to meet the Calder Highway at its junction south of Ouyen, but when the Sunraysia Highway was given highway status, the Henty name was truncated back to Lascelles.

Henty Highway shares other roads along its route (this is called multiplexing), and these include:

  • A1 (Princes Highway) from Heywood to Portland North for 27 km
  • A8 (Western Highway) at Horsham for 3 km
  • B160 (Glenelg Highway) at Hamilton for 3 km
  • B240 (Wimmera Highway) from Horsham to Dooen for 10 km
  • C188 (Natimuk-Hamilton Road and Penshurst-Dunkeld Road) at Cavendish for 500 m
  • C234 (Borung Highway) at Warracknabeal for 1 km
