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.

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

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.

Newborough: Events

Summit Survivor


Summit Survivor is an awesome obstacle event for the thrill seekers out there.

If mud, water and electric shocks leave you in a cold sweat, stop reading now. The Summit Survivor is not for the faint-hearted and definitely not for delicate wallflowers who would blow away in a stiff breeze.

The epic five kiometre course is the most obstacle-dense course in Victoria. And it will have you ducking, weaving, leaping, staggering, clambering, wading and, at times, dragging your sodden body through substances and apparatuses that quite frankly would look more at home in a war zone.

Imagine Tough Mudder, the Summit Survivor is just that course, but more fun!

Summit Survivor is an awesome obstacle course over five kilometres long with 36 epic obstacles and is for all fitness levels and for ages. Summit Survivor is located on only, 90 minutes from Melbourne in Trafalgar East.

Now complete with a 1.3 kilometre obstacle course for the kids too, there is fun for the whole family.

Walk, run or sprint your way through the awesome mud, nets, beams, ice, zaps and so much more. Less run, more fun.

With 100 per cent of all profits from the event will be donated to Youth Leadership Programs in Victoria. Do not delay, register now.
