"Small Town with Lots to Offer"

Latrobe is great. Often busy it still has a small community 'vibe'. The streetscape has retained it's historic charm and a Sunday wouldn't be complete in Latrobe without a trip to the local market, a browse in Reliquaire (if you haven't been here you must), morning tea at a cafe or at Anvers Chocolate Factory. There is no parking fees in Latrobe and the Hill St Grocer and Ritchie's IGA will have your weekly grocery shop sorted. Latrobe boasts a butcher, bakeries, boutiques, a bank (imagine that - a small town bank) and other banking services, a medical practice and is of course home to the Mersey Community Hospital. There is Primary School options and a High School catering for up to year 12 which has had recent upgrades.
If you're keen for sport then Latrobe has that sorted - plus the Latrobe Federal Band is the longest running brass band in the country.
The river is picturesque and whilst it did flood a few years ago the council has committed to flood mitigation to minimise the risk in the future.
With a mix of old and new, the housing options are plenty and the demographic is a good mix.
