Latrobe Valley's largest city, Traralgon is shaped by wide tree-lined streets, beautiful gardens and spacious parklands. The town is the region's entertainment capital with alfresco dining at cafes and restaurants, and thriving pubs and clubs.
See remnants of the gold rush years reflected in the architecture of the town: the Traralgon Post Office, Ryans Hotel and Ostler House. Traralgon has grown to service Victoria's energy, and the local surrounding agricultural, pastoral, papermaking and timber industries.
Sidewalk cafes, restaurants and shopping arcades mark the commercial centre of Traralgon. There is a string of bars, pubs and clubs in the town hosting an array of live bands and entertainment. Enjoy a musical or comedy act at the Latrobe Performing Arts Centre.
Picnickers flock to Victory Park with its marble sculpture Lars Compatalis, historic band rotunda and beautiful gardens. A stroll over the creek along the footbridge leads to Newman Park featuring a huge adventure playground including miniature train rides operating on the fourth Sunday of every month.
