The town of Seymour, named by Thomas Mitchell after the British parliamentarian Lord Seymour, was established in 1839 at the crossing of the Goulburn River on the Melbourne-Sydney route (now known as the Hume Highway) where an inn was first built. The Post Office opened on 1 July 1844.   The railway arrived in 1872 along with substantial infrastructure to support it, establishing the town as an important rail hub for the Goulburn Valley, the Melbourne-Sydney railway and North Eastern Victoria.

The town of Seymour is a leisurely drive of around 100km or 60 miles north of Melbourne.  The township services the surrounding agricultural industries (primarily horse, cattle, sheep and wine) as well as the nearby military base of Puckapunyal which is an important training centre for the Australian Army.
