More on Morwell

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Morwell area was inhabited by the Gunai tribe of indigenous people. The earliest Europeans were pastoralists who migrated south from the Monaro region in New South Wales in the 1840s. This began with Angus McMillan and Sir Paul Edmund de Strzelecki arriving in the area which they would later name Gippsland.

The decision of the Victoria government to built a railway line from Melbourne to Sale contributed to the development of Morwell. The opening of coal mines in the area also brought development and employment to the town.

Located in the Latrobe Valley, Morwell has an economy based on power generation, paper manufacturing, timber mills and agriculture.
