Places nearby Newborough


Newborough and Yallourn North are small centres just to the north of three of Latrobe City's major centres, Moe, Morwell and Traralgon. The city which covers 1450sqkm was created in 1994 with the amalgamation of Moe, Morwell and Traralgon cities and parts of the Rosedale and Narracan shires. The new city is, in fact, the centralised Latrobe Valley powerhouse which drives Victoria's manufacturing and export industries. The valley satisfies 85 per cent of the state's overall, electricity needs and the Latrobe power base directly creates 4000 jobs and generates $16 billion worth of domestic and export income. Despite all the industrial connections, the city is just 20 minutes from the mountains, national parks and streams laden with trout spoiling for a joust with an angler. And this geographically and culturally diverse region, in which the Dutch, Italian, German and Maltese are the largest ethnic groups, is just 150km, or one and a half hour, from Melbourne.

Tyers Park

Set in the foothills to the north of the Latrobe Valley, Tyers Park encompasses the fine scenery of the Tyers Gorge where the Tyers River winds between steep forested slopes. The park has an abundance of diverse wildflowers and the birdlife, making it a favourite destination for naturalists. Outcrops of limestone and conglomerate are of geological interest. The limestone contains both plant and animal fossils.

Popular activities at Tyers Park include scenic drives, bushwalks, picnicking, swimming, fishing and nature study.

Spring is the main wildflower season and a good time to visit, although the park has plenty to offer throughout the year.
