Leongatha - Cities, Towns and Localities

Memorial Hall - Leongatha

The largest town in South Gippsland and located only 133 km south east of Melbourne within the foothills of the Strezlecki Ranges. Today it is the civic centre of the region.

Originally settled around 1845 due to the large number of Mountain Ash and Blue Gums that could be harvested quite easily on the gently sloping hills surrounding the town. Gold was discovered in the 1870's bringing more settlers into the area and finally the railway line in 1892 further boosted agriculture production in the region.

A number of industries have passed through the town over the preceding years with the mainstay being dairy products. Grapes another important product is now grown extensively around Leongatha and showcased at the annual Leongatha Food and Wine Festival.
