Snapshot Of Latrobe City
We are located east of Melbourne and are one of Victoria's major regional centres. Our region is made up of four central towns: Churchill, Moe Newborough, Morwell, and Traralgon.
We are less than two hours’ drive from Melbourne Airport along the Princes Freeway (M1) and around an hour and a half from central Melbourne. V/Line run hourly rail services between Melbourne and Traralgon. We have traditionally been recognised as the centre of Victoria's electricity industry, which is derived from one of the largest brown coal reserves in the world. We are also at the centre of a large forestry industry which services Australian Paper's pulp and paper mill (the largest in Australia) and other sawmills.
Other industries in the area include food processing (Lion - Morwell), engineering, post-secondary education with the new Federation University Australia and the service sector.
Being the largest population centre in the Gippsland region, Latrobe City acts as the regional headquarters for Government agencies, private operators including banks and insurance companies.
For investors and businesses looking to relocate to a regional centre, Latrobe City provides excellent opportunities for investment. New and existing businesses have an access to a skilled workforce, strong road and rail transport links, natural resources, established electricity infrastructure, locally based education institutions and affordable land prices.

Plans For Narracan
Shops, walking tracks, thousands of new homes and even a primary school have been mooted as part of bold long-term plans for popular summer watering hole Lake Narracan.
Long touted as the "jewel in the crown" of the Latrobe Valley, the lake has become a central focus of Latrobe City Council's planning team in a bid to reveal its full potential. A foreshore atmosphere similar to areas of the Gippsland lakes, a pathway around the entire perimeter and links to Moe and Newborough are all part of the vision.Click Here To See Land Prices
