Traralgon

Traralgon - Gippsland - Victoria

Traralgon is Latrobe Valley's largest city and located in the Gippsland region, 161 kilometres from Melbourne. Roam the vast village streets fringed with trees and admire the grandeur of classic buildings, a reminder of Traralgon's birthright, the old Post Office, Ryans Hotel and Ostler House. These time honoured buildings prompt us to remember the prosperous gold rush days. Kick up your heels at a local drinking den and listen to the talented musos rock out a few tunes or take in a live show or act at Latrobe Peforming Arts Centre. Traralgon is not only a commercial hub but flaunts its reputation as the entertainment capital of the region with an array of activity in the chain of bars, pubs and clubs in town.

The town is primarily a service centre for Victoria's electricity production and local agricultural, pastoral, papermaking and timber industries. Take your pick to dine in restaurants or alfresco cafes and if the mood befits a picnic then you will not want to miss Victory Park, featuring the marble sculpture of Lars Compatalis, a band rotunda and enchanting gardens. Continue over the footbridge to Newman Park for the kids even the big ones, for a workout at the Adventure Playground and miniature train rides held on the fourth Sunday of every month.

Visit one of only four chief areas of cool temperate rainforest in Victoria at Tarra Bulga National Park. The park is home to stunning picnic areas set amongst lush tree ferns, misty gullies and towering giant mountain ash trees. Take a hike on one of the popular walks capturing sensational views as you traverse the suspension bridge or try something a little different with a mountain bike thrill or a rafting tour.
