Set within rich rural surroundings, Morwell has a population of approximately 14,540 (forecast to grow to 15,212 by 2040) and sits within the Latrobe City Council municipality.

One of Morwell’s strengths is its long established multicultural community.  Migrants from many nations were attracted by Morwell’s employment opportunities after the second world war, with the town’s diversity of clubs, recreational and entertainment facilities reflecting the significant influence of these nationalities over. the years.
