McIvor Highway is a short Victorian highway (44 km) linking Bendigo and Heathcote. Together with Hume Freeway (until Wallan) and Northern Highway (until Heathcote), it provides an alternative route between Melbourne and Bendigo. Previously assigned State Route 141, it was later designated B280. The name 'McIvor' refers to the original name of the Heathcote region, used during the Victorian Gold Rush.

The entire highway is in the City of Greater Bendigo local government area.
