Koonwarra - Cities, Towns and Localities

Located in the heart of dairy country, nestled between the rolling hills of the Strezlecki Ranges, and within easy access to the world heritage Wilsons Promontory National Park, Koonwarra is a rural village that actively demonstrate ‘sustainable living’, being the first ‘Waste Wise Village’ in Australia.

Once a station on the railway line, originally from Dandenong East to Yarram, the station at Koonwarra was opened during the 1890s. In the 1930's and 1940's the station at Korumburra was particularly busy as coal was hauled to feed Victorian Railways' steam locomotives. In the 1980s trains ceased running between Leongatha and Yarram, whilst regular passenger services to Leongatha continued until 1993, when the line was closed between Cranbourne and Leongatha.

In July, 2003, The South Gippsland Tourist Railway re-launched their services, which operates on Sundays and Public Holidays the 38 km section of the line from Nyora to Leongatha.
