The Latrobe Valley is where the city meets the country, and the region’s strength is its capacity to hold major events and provide the services and facilities expected from a city, with the warmth of country hospitality.
Just two hours east of Melbourne along the M1 Princes Freeway, the Latrobe Valley is one of Victoria’s largest regional centres. Latrobe Valley, also known as Latrobe City, encompasses the major towns of Traralgon, Morwell, Moe and Churchill plus a number of smaller rural townships.
The Latrobe City Council Events Unit and Visitor Information Centre provide strong support and assistance to event organisers. The region often hosts international, national and state sporting titles, cultural performances and festivals, indoor and outdoor expos, conferences and meetings.
Latrobe Valley is a valley of contrasts with quality retail, vibrant night life and entertainment and a myriad of culinary experiences, giving way to vistas of rolling green hills and the beckoning of the great outdoors. Enjoy theatre, cinema, art galleries, museums, recreational centres and a choice of country golf courses. You will also find peaceful villages, serene lakes, wetlands and wide open spaces.
Located in the centre of Gippsland, the Latrobe Valley offers the perfect base to mix business with leisure, to immerse delegates in a stimulating environment, challenge them with a range of activities or reconnect with nature.
