The town was eventually dismantled. Most of the timber houses were sold and relocated to other sites, whilst the brick buildings were bulldozed.

Demolition - what address is this house?

The last 3 houses standing in Yallourn at the end of 1981 were demolished by using them as a training unit for the National Safety Council of Australia. Could the house with the red roof be 23 Latrobe Avenue? Does anyone recognise the house or the palm tree in the background?

G'day all I'm currently making a newsletter for tafe about the relocation of some of the houses in Yallourn and was wondering if any one knows whether any of the houses made it to Wirilda Park in Tyres, I know some made it to Old Gippstown but other than that I really have no idea so any help would be appreciated.

Your endeavoring historian,

Bevan.
