Morwell Centenary Rose Garden

Reviewed By 1TraveltheWorld - Alice Springs, Australia

The Centenary Rose Garden is located along an elongated strip between Avondale Road and Maryvale Crescent.
Although it is situated in a slightly obscure area, this should not dissuade you from visiting.
The garden has wide paths, arbours for the climbing roses to walk through and manicured lawns.
This was evident by the several volunteers that were working away to in keeping up the high standard appearance even this late in the season.
One thing we did find difficult was the lack of parking in the area. It was mid-week and the surrounding area was full, not sure why.
Unfortunately, we were travelling through at the tail end of flowering period and many of the roses were on their last show.
It’s worth a visit to “stop and smell the roses”.

Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve

Reviewed By NinaOlive - Toongabbie, Australia

This is a lovely reserve with lots of walking trails. Lots of bird-life and heaps of great locations for family photos. There are no toilets or facilities (cafes etc) so bring food for a relaxing picnic.

Latrobe River

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

The Latrobe River is a perennial river of the West Gippsland catchment, located in the West Gippsland region of the Australian state of Victoria. The river flows generally in an easterly direction, then south, and then east again through the Latrobe Valley, joined by seventeen tributaries before reaching its mouth in Lake Wellington east of Sale where it forms it's confluence with the Avon.
Standing on the Swing Bridge outside of Sale you will be standing over the Latrobe River. It is part of what makes Gippsland a remarkable place to live in.

Gippsland Immigration Park

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

We have driven past this park on many occasions and it has peaked my interest... well now I am wondering why it's taken me so long to stop and smell the roses literally. There were white roses along the way that smelled heavenly. But the best park of this delightful park are the historic markers. They are full of historic information about Gippsland.. ALL areas of Gippsland! We found the information boards really interesting... breaking our walk by stopping to read the boards along the way.
I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in the local area to spend some times here.

Lake Hyland

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

It's small...but it's lovely. On the edge of Churchill is this beautiful man-made lake that is a testament to the locals who continue to improve it. As we walked around the lake, there was plenty of birdlife... and there was also a volunteer checking the new plants.
It was a busy track with plenty of locals using the walking track. There is also a park nearby for young children which was colourful and a lovely addition.
The track is well looked after and would be suitable for anyone using mobility aides. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Hazelwood Pondage

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

Hazelwood Pondage is a man-made lake which was created as a cooling pond for the Hazelwood Power Station and it is used by the locals for swimming, boating and fishing. It's the only lake that maintains a temperature of 22C all year round for activities.
Today it was overcast and not as I remembered it as a teenager when it hummed with activity. The area could do with some upgrades. There is a caravan park for anyone who wants to stay, but it has clearly seen better days.

Reviewed By Joy C - Warragul, Australia

i used to take my Grade Ones for little rambles here many years ago. It is still a a wonderful slice of magical bushland with easy access, yet many don't even know it is there. Take the time to go for a wander and enjoy it's peace!

Old Brown Coal Mine museum

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

I love these little museums that you find in small country towns. This one is run by volunteers of the local historical society. It features old photos.machinery, scale models and much more related to the local mining industry. Well worth a visit.

Morwell Common

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

The definition is very accurate... the common is a common piece of land in the centre of Morwell. It's not too far to supermarkets of the shopping strip ( such that it is)
It reminds me of many of the parks and oval areas that were utilised in my youth.. where children went to kick a football or play cricket. It has an amazing grass area that would be great for just that. And then there's the playground... it's great. The ground is soft and spongy for safety reasons and it's beautiful designed with some great features for children.
Oh I admit it ... I played for awhile, got dizzy on one of the play areas and then left once the children came too close. My cat was okay until it heard people. :)
