The Morwell River is a river of Gippsland in southeastern Victoria, Australia. It arises in the Strzelecki Ranges and flows in a northerly direction close to the townships of Boolarra and Yinnar to Morwell. The lower section of the river has been diverted around open-cut coal mines by channels and pipelines until it enters the Latrobe River.
On June 6, 2012, a levee bank failure resulted in the flooding of the Yallourn coal mine causing damage to its infrastructure and cutting fuel supply to the adjacent power station.
