Traralgon is the largest city in the Latrobe Valley, which is home to most of Victoria's power generation facilities.
Wide tree-lined streets, attractive gardens, and a thriving commercial centre are characteristics of the Traralgon of today.
A short drive south of the town is the Loy Yang Power Complex and open-cut coal mine. The Hyland Highway passes right through the complex and a couple of visitor lookouts are provided to marvel at the massive scale of coal mining and electricity generation. The power station's two chimneys are 260 metres high - roughly the same height as Melbourne's Rialto Towers.
Further south of Traralgon the Strzelecki Ranges offer a number of scenic tourist drive routes, including the Grand Ridge Road and the route to the Tarra Bulga National Park. North of Traralgon are extensive alpine ranges which include such attractions as the ski resort of Mount Baw Baw, the Thompson Dam (which provides Melbourne with its largest supply of water), a number of state and national parks, and the historic community of Walhalla.
We are perfectly located to enjoy some of the best motorcycling roads in Victoria.
