Yackandandah, Walking Trails & Nature

A great way to explore Yackandandah is on foot. Yackandandah is one of the prettiest villages in North East Victoria with beautiful rolling hills, crystal clear creeks, swimming holes and historic gold rush trails. Yackandandah is the perfect place to relax and renew in nature.

Nestled into the surrounding landscape, Yackandandah is awash with golden hues in autumn and vibrant, leafy green in spring; a legacy of  the vast European tree plantings of the 1850's.

The aboriginal meaning of Yackandandah is 'one boulder on top of another at the junction of two creeks'. If you look hard enough, the granite boulders can still be found.

There are a number of short walks in and around the township. Download the Walks with a Story guide to discover more.
