Established in 1863 as a vital supply depot for local gold mining operations, Toongabbie has developed into a beautiful town known for its strong community spirit. Packed with amenities such as a primary school, general store, post office, sporting facilities and a community hall, Toongabbie loves bringing residents together.
Part of the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail, Toongabbie is also home to the Ned Stringer Memorial and heritage-listed buildings such as the Mechanics Institute and Free Library which is the only existing two-storey timber Mechanic's Institute building left in Victoria.
