The historic town of Moe at the western end of Victoria’s Latrobe Valley offers a glimpse of life in Gippsland in the nineteenth century, with its preserved buildings and historic sites and a fascinating heritage park.
Step back in time to the 1850s and visit Old Gippstown, Gippsland’s Heritage Park, featuring recreated streets with authentic old buildings, horse-drawn carriages, agricultural machinery, and a general store.
Moe also offers good contemporary shopping and dining, with nearby bushland and lakes providing fun-filled recreational activities for visitors. The Moe to Yallourn Rail Trail takes in the diverse sites of the bushland, lakes and distant mountain views, as well as the imposing Yallourn Power station. Enjoy the scenic walks of the Edward Hunter Bush Reserve.
The nearby Old Brown Coal Mine Museum in Yallourn North details the history of coal mining in the region. Moe also serves as a gateway to the historic goldfields at Walhalla and the snowfields at Mt Baw Baw and Mt St Gwinear.
Moe is about an hour and forty-five minutes by car from Melbourne along the Princes Highway.
