Works to repair a section of the Osbornes Flat to Yackandandah Rail Trail affected by storm damage have begun this week. These repair works are fully funded by the Victorian Government's Council Flood Support Fund. 

Users will be able to pass through this section of the trail until Monday 26 February, but from Tuesday 27 February, the trail will be closed to allow the works to be completed, which is expected to take about three weeks.

The works are necessary safety repairs and will restore the trail to its pre-flood condition, so please be mindful of the changed conditions and safety signage.

The Rail Trail from Yackandandah to Beechworth remains fully operational.
After four years, Canadian troubadour Scott Cook returns to Yackandandah this Saturday 17 February, this time joined by his sweetheart Pamela Mae on upright bass, banjo and vocals.

Armed with a new album, 'Tangle of Souls,' @scottcookmusic is ready to perform a night of sturdy, straight-talking songs. The album spent two weeks at number one on Alberta's province-wide community radio network CKUA, and earned Scott his third Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, for English Songwriter of the Year. Arts Yackandandah is presenting the show as they did in 2019, in the Yackandandah Courthouse this time, with locals @candicemcleodmusic, Gabby Vening and Paul Wookey adding their own musical magic to the evening.
