Lives in Newborough

I’ve lived here basically my whole life. I’ve lived in a few different towns – I grew up in Yallourn North, lived in Morwell, lived in Hazelwood North and now in Newborough. I love calling Newborough home. I love to travel around to all the different places. There’s such great scenery. I’m a photographer, so I do love taking photos of the Valley. I’ve just recently in the past year got into fitness. I set myself a challenge to walk every day for a year. So I have gotten to do a few rail trails around Gippsland and some of the nature reserves. I love the fact that even if you don’t know someone in the Valley everyone will say ‘hi’ to you when you’re walking past, especially with their animals; they’re always friendly.

Moe has a wonderful community spirit, always has. Of the three major towns, I think it’s better in Moe than it is in Morwell or Traralgon. But, um, maybe I’m a bit biased. For me, a lot of people move away and they denigrate the area, but to me, it’s…

I love the Latrobe Valley because that’s where my family is, so I feel a really strong, social connection to Morwell because my whole family’s here. I moved away for five years, and it was really isolating to be so detached from family.
It’s such a beautiful, natural place…

The Valley can take us anywhere and I suppose we look up to those that have made it in whatever avenue they’ve taken, whether it’s science or education or whatever it is, sport.

There’s plenty of different heroes around town and it’s good that we can call them our own.
