History

Woorabinda – The Camp by the Waterhole

       Woorabinda has successfully   

       operated as a residential

education setting since it was

officially opened in

February 1973. 

Originally an inspectorate

camp for the children of the

Warragul inspectorate,

Woorabinda was established

by a group of dedicated

educators, school councillors

and committed locals. 

 

The site, on the north shore of

Lake Narracan, was provided by

the State Electricity Commission.

The buildings were once the nurses quarters at the Yallourn Hospital. 

In 2010 Woorabinda became a campus of Somers School Camp, a primary school under the adminitration of the Department of Education & Training (DET).
