Description

Koetong is a locality in north-east Victoria, Australia. The locality, part of the Towong Shire local government area, is on the Murray Valley Highway between Tallangatta and Corryong, 394 kilometres (245 mi) north-east of the state capital, Melbourne, . Koetong was surveyed in 1885 but not proclaimed until 1952. Tin and gold mining has been sporadically carried out in the area since 1873.The local state school first opened in 1890 and after several temporary closures, closed permanently in 2003. The town is an access point to nearby Mount Lawson State Park. # History # Weather Koetong features warm, stormy summers and cold, very wet winters with frequent snowfalls at higher elevations. Climate data is sourced from Hunters Hill, in the pine plantations to the south of Koetong at an altitude of 981 metres (3,219 ft) AMSL (operating since 1993)—the surrounding hills are even higher, reaching 1,279 metres (4,196 ft) at Burrowa Pine-Mountain. This climate features a particularly wide annual range of maximum temperatures—almost a range of 20 °C (68 °F): ranging from 26.2 °C (79.2 °F) in January to 7.4 °C (45.3 °F) in July. A prominent winter precipitation peak is noted, due to westerly upwinds; as with the rest of the South West Slopes bio-region. # Things to do
