Explore Yackandandah this winter via the gorgeous Valley View Walk 🌄 

This scenic trail takes you along the side of Bushranger Hill, offering panoramic views of Yackandandah and the majestic Mount Big Ben in the distance.

Steeped in history, legend has it that the notorious bushranger ‘Mad’ Dan Morgan once stole a racehorse in nearby Tallangatta and was seen escaping across the ridgeline here, hence the name Bushranger Hill.

With a mix of sealed roads, unsealed paths, and dedicated walking trails, the Valley View Walk promises a moderate challenge and rewarding vistas. Embrace the crisp winter air and keep active while immersing yourself in the natural beauty and captivating tales of Yackandandah.
