Description

Leongatha is a town in the foothills of the Strzelecki ranges, south Gippsland shire, victoria, Australia, located 135 kilometres (84 mi) south-east of Melbourne. The town is the civic, commercial, industrial, religious, educational and sporting centre of the region. At the 2016 census, Leongatha had a population of 5,119. The murray goulburn co-operative co. Limited is a farmers' co-operative which trades in Australia under the Devondale label and has a dairy processing plant on the north side of the town producing milk-based products for Australian and overseas markets. The first settlement of the area by Europeans occurred in 1845. The post office opened as Koorooman on 1 October 1887 and renamed Leongatha in 1891 when a township was established on the arrival of the railway. The railway line from Melbourne reached the town in 1891 and stimulated further settlement. Regular v/line passenger operations on the line to the local railway station ceased in 1993.
