Yallourn was a company town in Victoria built between the 1920s and the 1950s to house employees of the State Electrical 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.
The town was planned by A.R. La Gerche, the State Electricity Commisions Architect. The design of Yallourn incorporated lessons learnt from the early UK garden cities of Welwyn Garden City and Letchworth Garden City inspired by Ebenezer Howard. Walter Burley Griffin also drew on similar sources for his designs.
