Dooen VIC


Postcode: 3401

Dooen is a small town situated in the Wimmera region, Western Victoria, Australia. The Henty Hwy between Mildura and Portland passes through the tiny town. The Old Dooen pub is one of the few remaining occupied buildings and is popular amongst the agricultural students of Longerenong College. The Dooen School closed in 1994, the Dooen Hall is all that remains on the site.

The ABC Western Victoria transmitter at Dooen, named 594 3WV, was built in the mid-30s. The mast is nearly 190 metres tall and the transmitter generates 50 kilowatts of energy, with only 13 other more powerful broadcast towers in Australia. The lattice work at the top of the mast is 20 metres in diameter.
