Waterloo is a locality consisting of a collection of farms and houses approximately 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the town of Beaufort, Victoria and 162 kilometres (101 mi) west north west of the state capital of Melbourne.
The locality is the birth place of Ernest Chinnery (5 November 1887- 17 December 1972), an Australian anthropologist and public servant who worked extensively in Papua New Guinea and visited communities along the Sepik river.
During World War I many men from Waterloo served in the 57th Battalion, 2nd Reinforcement of the Australian Army.
