Although Noojee wasn’t officially founded until the early 1900’s, in the mid 1860’s European settlers came to Noojee as gold prospectors, and tin miners, and settled in the area. In 1919, Noojee became a major timber town when a branch railway line was built connecting Noojee to Warragul. Today you will still see logging trucks going through the township and it is what Noojee is known for, however the rail line is no longer in operation.
Noojee is an aboriginal word meaning ‘valley of, or place of, rest’. And this is certainly a place to come and rest, relax, explore and unwind!
