Morwell is the largest city in the Latrobe Valley, 150 km east of Melbourne, with about twice the population of Moe, which is a little closer to Melbourne. Primarily a product of the open cut brown coal mines of the State Electricity Commission of Victoria, successive governments invested heavily in Morwell, with a power station, briquette factory and over 2000 houses built by the Victorian Housing Commission. With the demolition of Yallourn in the 1970s, Morwell’s centrality continued to grow.
