Nestled in the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges and with views of green rolling hills, Yarragon is a charming country town with an abundance of shops, antiques and accommodation options.
Yarragon boasts one of Gippsland’s leading art galleries, renowned for its permanent collection along with special exhibitions, exquisite jewellery, beautiful hand blown glass and much more. Fossick through the antique shops for old china or furnishings and browse the town’s gift shops and their locally made soaps, candles, linen and lace, clothing, and art supplies.
Regional wines and produce are mouth-watering. Sample award winning cheeses from Tarago River and Jindi Cheese, or if you have more of a sweet tooth, visit the lolly shop to buy delicious sweets. Linger over Devonshire teas in a quaint tea room.
Take advantage of Yarragon’s proximity to the Strzelecki Ranges and set out on walks through dense mountain ash and wattle, and take a rest beside a bubbling stream. Head to the local trout farm to catch a delicious dinner.
