Jumbuk: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Morwell National Park


Situated in the northern foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges, this park is small in size but of great value in preserving a remnant of the area's original plant and animal life.

The best was to enjoy Morwell National Park is to walk through it. Fosters Gully Nature Walk provides an excellent introduction to the park.

Things to do
A self-guided nature walk through Fosters Gully provides the visitor with detailed information on the variety of plants and animals found in the park. The walk begins at the Kerry Road picnic area and takes about an hour to complete. Camping is not permitted.

Heritage
Morwell National Park and surrounding area was occupied by the Woollum Woollum Clan who used the area to hunt possums for food and skins. Artefacts from these times have been found in the surrounding areas. Europeans settled here in the 1840s and cleared land for grazing. Remnants of saw mills and mining can be seen today.

Morwell Centenary Rose Garden


Take the time to stop and smell the roses at one of the world's premier rose gardens. The Morwell Centenary Rose Garden proudly showcases about 3000 roses across three acres of internationally recognised rose garden, in a scenic park-like setting at the edge of the CBD.

Climbing roses create walls of colour and perfume, while garden paths wind their way through perfumed beds of Hybrid Tea, Floribunda and Austin roses. A collection of Australian and New Zealand bred roses is at the southern end; and to the north set in a cottage garden are many old fashioned and species roses. Manicured beds edged with paving stones complement the magnificence of the entire garden.

The garden forms the western entrance to the Morwell Business District, Civic Centre, Art Gallery and the Justice Precinct. This community project is a continuing work undertaken by the "Friends of the Rose Garden", volunteers and sponsors with the generous support of Latrobe City Council.
