ANNUAL EVENTS
COALIES WEEKEND 2016 November 12th & 13th.
What is Coalies Weekend?

A group consisting of local residents, and past residents of Brown Coal Mine, met yearly at a private venue to renew old friendships and talk about old times. Having an association with the brown coal industry in some form or another, the group called themselves "Coalies". The society, with support of Latrobe City Council and Energy Australia Yallourn, conduct the celebration at the museum. This event was named after our early residents of Brown Coal Mine "Coalies"

From 2009 Coalies Week was reduced to a weekend. For more information call the Museum on
