Nestled on the banks of the Latrobe River and surrounded by rolling green hills and densely wooded forests of Mountain Ash, is the historic timber town of Noojee. This picturesque little town is a delightful escape from the heat in the summer months and lush and green all year round.

Just a few minutes drive or a pleasant walk from Noojee township, is the Noojee Trestle Bridge. This bridge, known as No. 7, is the only remaining of seven trestle bridges on the section of railway line between Nayook and Noojee. The bridge is 102m long and 20m high and said to be one of the largest of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. It was rebuilt in 1939, after it burned down in the massive bush- fires of that year. Constructed from local timber, it is regarded as a fine example of the quality of work carried out by the Gippsland railways at the time and is classified by the National Trust. Visitors can drive to the base of the structure where steps lead up to its highest point. From the bridge, it is a short walk or bike ride along the trail back into Noojee.

A short drive of about 10 minutes from Noojee brings you to Toorongo Falls where you will find two stunning waterfalls, the Toorongo Falls and the Amphitheatre Falls only a couple of km walk from the car park and are well worth the short climb to get there.

You can stay for the day or stay for a while with a number of different accommodation options from luxury chalets to deluxe cabins as well as a café, a pub and an award winning restaurant.
