Churchill Caravan Park in Churchill Victoria

Churchill is a town in the Latrobe Valley, located in central Gippsland in the east of Victoria, Australia. The town had a population of 4,588 at the 2006 census, and is part of the Latrobe City local government area. The town was named in honour of former British leader Sir Winston Churchill.

Churchill has one defining and quite unique landmark, that being a huge replica of Winston Churchill’s cigar (known locally as “the big cigar”). Originally it was anticipated that five of these would be built around points of the town centre’s edge, but only one was actually ever built. The Binishell was also a prominent feature visible from much of the eastern side of town, this has since been pulled down.

Near the base of the cigar is a commemorative brick wall built by the Rotary Club of Hazelwood. It gives the names of the first families to move into the town.
