History[edit]

Logan was once a larger town during the Victorian Gold Rush. There was a post office, school, two churches, a community hall, a general store and other buildings. Logan Post Office opened on 18 January 1886 and closed in 1974.[2] The town had a medium-sized oval which was home ground for a local Australian Rules football team.

There have been three pubs in the town's history - the first two have been demolished.
