ABOUT Traralgon South
Traralgon South is a rural locality on the Traralgon Creek, 11 km south of Traralgon.
Soon after farmers took up selections in the area a school was opened in a private farm house in 1879. There have since been at least three replacement school buildings, in 1880, 1923 and the latest one. In addition to the school, the small town also had a Mechanics’ Institute and a church in 1913.
Traralgon South today has become an outer rural residential locality for Traralgon and the Latrobe Valley. It has a store, a large public hall, a kindergarten, a recreation reserve, a CFA station and primary school in a lovely bush setting.
Nearby is the Traralgon South Flora and Fauna Reserve, a nature lovers park to discover flora and a habitat for native birds and animals with easy walking tracks.
