Suburb Overview

Wonthaggi is a town located 132 kilometres south east of Melbourne via the South Gippsland and Bass Highways, in the Bass Coast Shire of Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. The town, known originally for its coal mining, is now the regional service centre for tourism, beef and dairy industries, and at the 2006 census, it had a population of 6,529.

The name "Wonthaggi" is an Aboriginal word which means "to drag, carry or pull with the wind."

Coal was discovered by explorer William Hovell at Cape Paterson in 1826, and was subsequently mined from the Powlett River fields in the region, between 1859 and 1864. However transporting the coal by whale boat through the surf to larger ships anchored offshore proved costly and dangerous and mining activity was soon curtailed.

Much of the coal for the colony of Victoria was sourced from Newcastle and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, along with local supplies from private and co-operative coal mines at Outtrim, Jumbunna and Korumburra in Gippsland. After the 1909-1910 strike by coal miners in the Hunter Valley, the Victorian state government were determined to ensure stability in local supplies of coal. The State Coal Mine and the town of Wonthaggi came into being in 1910 to supply coal for the steam trains in Victoria.

The Post Office had opened on 11 November 1887 in a rural area. On 1 August 1910 this office was renamed St Clair and on the same day Powlett Coal Mine PO, opened earlier that year, was renamed Wonthaggi.

In 1911 miners formed the Wonthaggi Co-operative Workmen's Club, a social club with 300 members and a membership fee of 10 shillings. Miners were also prominent in establishing the local hospital, friendly society dispensary, union theatre, and a co-operative store, and in supporting miners in New Zealand in the 1912 Waihi miners' strike.

Mining continued for 59 years, extracting 17 million tonnes of coal from 12 separate mines. The State Coal Mine closed in 1968 and is now operated by Parks Victoria as a visitor experience, with a well-presented museum.

The railway line through Kilcunda to Wonthaggi has been converted to the Bass Coast Rail Trail for the use of cyclists, walkers, and as a horse trail.

In 2005 the Wonthaggi Wind Farm was built near the town. The Bass Coast Shire Council was opposed to the wind farm along with local residents. Protesters argued the six turbines would taint the view of Cape Patterson on the trip from Kilcunda to Wonthaggi and would affect the "recreational tourism and landscape values of the coastline". By September 2005 the six towers had been built, but the turbines had not commenced operation, but were themselves a tourist attraction. The wind farm, now operational, generates power up to 80% of the time, providing electricity for up to 6000 homes.

The Wonthaggi Desalination Plant is a water desalination plant currently under construction on the Bass Coast near Wonthaggi, in southern Victoria, Australia, scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012. When completed, the plant will be an integral part of Victoria's water system, supplying water via a series of existing and proposed pipelines.
