Suburb Overview

Thorpdale is a small country town in the Gippsland area of eastern Victoria, Australia, less than 20 km south of Trafalgar. Famous for its potatoes, it is located amongst the rich farmland of the Latrobe Valley. Thorpdale spuds are eaten around the country and also exported overseas. The name "Thorpdale" means "village in a valley". The soil in the area is particularly rich as the town is located in a former volcanic crater. It is administered by the Shire of Baw Baw. At the 2006 census, Thorpdale and the surrounding area had a population of 447.

The Thorpdale district, known at first as the Narracan district, was settled in the 1870s. The first settlers arrived from the old Melbourne

Much of the old town was destroyed during the large Red Tuesday bushfire that ravaged Gippsland and the Otway Ranges.

Today, the Thorpdale township is becoming smaller and smaller as more farming families opt to live in larger townships such as Trafalgar. The national decline in consumption of potatoes is making even farming difficult in the small town.

The town has an Australian rules football team competing in the Mid Gippsland Football League.

In late 2008, the town was hit by the news that a potato disease had been found among its crops. The disease is not harmful to humans but can significantly reduce crop yields. Thorpdale farms were quarantined and banned from exporting potatoes interstate and overseas. Interstate trade has since resumed.

The township holds the Thorpdale Potato Festival each year on the Victorian Labour Day holiday in March but as the insurance cost is too great for the small community to bear, it has not been run since 2002. The festival features potato sack races. The lush farming surrounds give the town a peaceful rural atmosphere and there are several scenic sights nearby, including the Narracan Falls, Trafalgar South Lookout and Henderson's Gully.

A mountain ash gum tree at Thorpdale South once held the record for the tallest tree in the world. The tree was measured as being over 114 m tall by a certified surveyor using a theodolite. The tree was later felled in 1880 and re-measured along the ground, confirming the initial measurement. In 1976 the tree's location was marked by a plaque and a pole one-tenth the height of the tree.
