The Allan's Flat Scenic Drive is a round trip of about 21km on main roads. It begins from Yackandandah's High Street and takes you through a tour of the early gold mining villages of Staghorn, Allan's, Osborne's and Rowdy Flats before returning to Yackandandah. The 'flats' you'll see along the way were once a string of thriving, multinational gold mining communities along the Yackandandah Creek. This was a time of great prosperity but today little remains of this past, though the disturbed ground still bears the scars of gold mining activity. Stop off at the Allan's Flat Reserve for a picnic and cool swim in the warmer months, before returning to Yackandandah.
