Easter in Yackandandah

With some beautiful autumn weather predicted, this is the perfect opportunity to get out and explore Yackandandah and surrounds. Here are a few of our favourite things to do over Easter:

1. Get out on foot and explore

Grab a copy of the 'Short Walks with a Story' guide and choose from one of the five suggested walks including the Yack Gorge Walk and four lovely strolls around the township itself.

2. Get on ya bike!

If mountain biking is your deal, then Yack Tracks aka the Yackandandah Mountain Bike Track Network is located in the nearby Stanley Forest and contains a number of well mapped and managed long-form cross-country trails. You can see remnants of the gold mining days visible in the tracks which range from easy to intermediate level. Head back into Yack following your ride for a well earned coffee or beer, whatever takes your fancy!

3. Indulge - It's Easter after all!

Yackandandah's foodie scene is thriving so after a wander, walk or ride around town, make sure you take time to fit in a visit to one of our pubs, cafes or bakeries.

4. Home of the best pies around

You be the judge! Check out Beechworth Bakery Yackandandah and Gum Tree Pies. We think in Yack you will discover some of the best pies in the region...and possibly even Australia!

5. Something for the creatives amongst us

We are proud as punch that our local master potter, John Dermer, currently has an exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria celebrating his work. If you want to check out John's work while in the region, head to his Kirby's Flat Pottery for John's 40th Annual Easter Tableware Exhibition.

While in Yack, check out Sluga Gallery, home to renowned contemporary watercolour artist, Charles Sluga. The Gallery is housed in a lovingly restored building built in 1892.


Need more inspiration? Visit the Yack Visitor Information Centre at the top of the main street, conveniently located in the historic Old Post Office. The Centre is staffed by locals who know the deal and can suggest a variety of things to do.
