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.

I absolutely love the Latrobe Valley and the wider Gippsland region. I did a lot of travel in my 20s right around Australia and overseas and I think you could go two ways. You either go, ‘I’m never going home’, or you get an appreciation for how good you’ve got…

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.
