Yackandandah - Fast Facts

Yackandandah (including Allans Flat)
Fascinating historic gold mining town
Yackandandah is a rather special and very attractive historic village situated in a valley amidst a series of substantial hills. The streetscape is largely unchanged from its heyday as a goldmining town. Many of the buildings are genuinely historic and attractive: so much so that the entire commercial area has been classified by the National Trust. The fine main street is lined with shady English trees (some planted in the 19th century), verandahs, wide awnings, tea houses, galleries, shops selling crafts, gifts, antiques and collectables, a couple of country pubs and some gracious churches.
