Churchill, population 5,000, is a town in the Latrobe Valley, located in Central Gippsland and was named in honour of the former British leader, Sir Winston Churchill. Surrounded by the stunning mountainous Jeeralangs, Churchill was originally a service centre for the Hazelwood Power Station and future placement for Yallourn and Morwell townships. Churchill has quite a unique landmark, that being a huge replica of Winston Churchill’s cigar (known locally as “the big cigar”). Near the base of the cigar is a commemorative brick wall built by the Rotary Club of Hazelwood. It gives the names of the first families to move into town.
The location was chosen for its pleasant location at the foot of the Strzelecki Ranges, overlooking Hazelwood Pondage. The waters of Hazelwood Pondage remain a minimum of 22 degrees, allowing a variety of water activities to take place all year round. Popular activities include sailing, power boats and waterskiing, yachting, canoeing and swimming. Because of its warm waters, Hazelwood Pondage is host to the Open Water Swimming Championships and the Latrobe City Sauna Sail. The Sauna Sail, a sailing regatta held annually in June attracts about 160 sail boats from across Victoria as well as interstate. The Traralgon Swimming Club also hosts several swimming events including the State Titles at Hazelwood Pondage. Hazelwood Pondage is the home of the Latrobe Valley Yacht Club. With an annual program of events, almost every Sunday, November through to May and every second thereafter, you will see sail boats out on the lake. A perfect setting for a family picnic or BBQ.
Visit Lake Hyland which is perfect for fishing, walking, picnics and BBQs. It features five comfortable fishing platforms with disabled access, a large picnic shelter with electric BBQs, picnic tables, toilets, fitness station, children’s playground and a walking track which encircles the lake. Lake Hyland is regularly stocked with fish, so you may catch a rainbow trout or even redfin, carp or eels.
