Moe is located approximately 120km to the east of Melbourne, in the Latrobe Valley and Gippsland region. The region is home to a diverse and growing economy, with key industry sectors include power generation, paper manufacture, timber mills, agriculture, dairy, timber, IT, engineering and education.

The power generation industry in particular is expanding fast, with both coal-fired power stations and geothermal plants planned for the region.

“This region offers great potential for coming years, riddled with other strong investment options including Churchill and Morewell,” says PRD Nationwide research analyst Dan Halloran. “It is the affordability of Moe that will drive capital growth throughout the suburb in the coming years.”

He adds that having one of the state's strongest rental yields, Moe "is sure to result in the added benefit of continued capital appreciation in years to come.”
