Moe in Victoria is a fairly large city with a population of about 18,000 people and is located in the Latrobe Valley. Most travellers stop in Moe on their way to the town of Erica, however Moe has some interesting tourist attractions to see too.
One of the greatest attractions to Moe is the Old Gippstown Gippsland Heritage Park. Here you can step back in time to the 1850ís, as the historic township will amaze your senses. There are streets full of heritage buildings including the old police station, general store and blacksmith forge of the 1850ís. The gardens are also very beautiful and make the perfect place to relax and have an Australian barbeque.
Old Gippstown also features the Saturday markets held on the last Saturday of every month. The market has stalls where fresh local fruit and vegetables are sold along with bric-a-brac and collectable items. The market is the perfect place to visit for stocking up your picnic basket of buying a holiday present.
Horseracing is another attraction well worth a visit. The best time of the year is the middle of October when the annual Moe Cup horserace is held. You canít miss the racecourse, as it is located centrally in the township near the railway.
Just 5 kilometres north of Moe is Lake Narracan. The Lake provides for popular holiday activities like swimming, boating and of course fishing. If you are intending on going fishing it is required to have a licence so check before you cast.
A great festival not to miss in Moe is the annual Jazz festival, which is held every year in March. The festival is usually held at the Moe RSL and runs for four days of entertainment and fun. The RSL also features the Banjoís on Albert restaurant, which is open 7 days a week and has some of the most scrumptious meals in Moe for dining.
