The town is situated adjacent to the Buchan River, in the Shire of East Gippsland, upstream from the river's junction with the Snowy River.
The name Buchan comes from the Aboriginal phrase “buccan” or “bukkan mungie”, referring to “stacks of rocks with a hole in it”. At Cloggs Cave just out of Buchan, evidence has been found of indigenous occupation dating back to prehistoric times.
The traditional custodians of the land surrounding the upper part of the Buchan River are the Bidawal and Nindi-Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero people.
