Yallourn in Latrobe Valley, Victoria – was a unique town built between the 1920s and 1950s by the State Electricity Commission of Victoria (SECV) to house their workers and then dug up by the same SECV for the coal beneath in the 1980s. This is our way of revisiting our town with our children and grandchildren.
In memory of Mavis & Paddy Mewett and Jean & George Donnet, who loved Yallourn so much. We have been able to upgrade our website thanks to the generosity of Kay Hall (Mewett) and Jim Donnet as a tribute to their parents. Our original software had to quickly be updated and we have now been able to stay in business.
We also thank Latrobe City Council for their contribution towards the redesign of this website.
See the many photos and house plans, read information, memories and stories. Most of all, play a part in it with us by adding your own photos and memories and help us name the various people in existing photos - for everyone to share.
