Lives in Willow Grove

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 it and that’s certainly what happened with me.

When I did explain where I lived to people I would say, ‘I live in the gorgeous town of Willow Grove. It’s beside Blue Rock Lake with the mountains coming up behind it. I’m 15 minutes from a major town that has a supermarket and everything that I need. I’m an hour from the beach, I’m an hour from the snow and I’m an hour and a half from the capital city’ and when I would explain it to people like that it made me stop and go, ‘actually, how luck am I?’, because I might be in a gorgeous part of Western Australia but I was a day and half drive from Perth. They never seen the snow, you know, so it really did give me that appreciation for how good we’ve got it.

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…

I like living in the Latrobe Valley because it allows me to give back to my community and to feel included as part of a community. So presenting myself in the Latrobe Valley has allowed me to give back to my community by participating in active and social events.
