LANG LANG

Lang Lang is one of those Melbourne satellite towns that are almost an outer suburb. As at today Lang Lang is still a small country village that is poised to change. There is no special reason to make an effort to visit.                                

The town is 73 km south-east from Melbourne's cbd. The village is just near the Lang Lang River and is the centre of the largest asparagus growing region in the southern hemisphere,

Lang Lang was formerly known as Carrington, after Lord Carrington. The Aboriginal name "Lang Lang" means "Clump of Trees".

The Post Office opened on 20 May 1878. In 1891 after the arrival of the rail it was renamed Lang Lang West and a new Lang Lang office was opened near the station. A Post Office Lang Lang East opened in early 1900ís

GMH operates the Lang Lang Vehicle Proving Ground, a vehicle development, durability testing, safety test centre and exhaust emission facility, located on the South Gippsland Highway near Lang Lang.

The Palace Hotel is not your usual country pub, for such a small town. The intersection is busy though.

The Lang Lang War Memorial is near the town centre and has a good profile.

The Museum is also near the War Memorial.

The congregational churches are all represented. The Anglican and United were located. The Catholic was not signed from the main street.

Lang Lang has a few things going for it. Not the least the place is a tidy and has a good sense of community.
