Yallourn

Yallourn, Victoria was a company town in Victoria, Australia built between the 1920s and 1950s to house employees of the State Electricity Commission of Victoria, who operated the nearby Yallourn Power Station complex. However, expansion of the adjacent open-cut brown coal mine led to the closure and removal of the town in the 1980s. At the 2006 census, Yallourn had a population of 251.

The Yallourn Works Area is an unincorporated enclave surrounded by the Local Government Area City of Latrobe, specifically the Tanjil Ward.
