Go back in time to historic Yackandandah and see why the tiny village has been classified by the National Trust. You can guide yourself, or follow the Historic Buildings Street Walk.
Less than 60-kilometres from Rutherglen, and nestled in the foothills of the Stanley State Forest, Yackandandah is surrounded by lush, green vegetation. You can indulge your senses at the nearby Lavender Farm, and walk or drive through the picturesque Yackandandah Gorge. Spot native birds and animals in the bushland, or go bushwalking and horse riding.
Today, Yackandandah is a thriving little community, home to many talented artists and artisans from around the world - just brimming with arts, crafts & antiques that will delight and surprise.
Enjoy a hearty meal in a real country pub, then roll out to take advantage of Yackandandah's location on the edge of the fertile Kiewa Valley. Stop at boutique wineries and fill your boot with local meats, fruit, nuts, honey and preserves before travelling back to Rutherglen.
