Named after the Aboriginal word for 'wild cherry tree', Nyora is a small town in South Gippsland in Victoria.
This is a gorgeous locality, nestled amongst rolling green hills, 93km from Melbourne. Generally peaceful and private, the town's population of around 500 swells during event days at Nyora Speedway, where an amazing array of races draw thousands of enthusiasts.
Nyora offers the best of all worlds, being just 11km from the nearest beach.
Nyora is home to the former V/Line railway station of the same name, which served primarily as a freight and goods transfer facility as well as the branch station for the former Leongatha, Barry Beach, Yarram and Wonthaggi lines. The railway station presently serves as part of the South Gippsland Railway — a community-based heritage/tourist railway organisation.
