About Yea-

Yea(population 1,100) is a small community situated between Seymour and Alexandra, one and a half hours drive from Melbourne. It is surrounded by rich pastoral and dairying properties in a beautiful hilly part of Victoria close to the boating precincts of Eildon Weir and the snowfields of Mt. Buller. The Yea River flows through the town which is surrounded by parks, wetlands and small lakes, a magnet for birdwatchers and fishermen.

The commercial centre straddles each side of the wide main boulevard with attractive parkland located in the street’s main strip. Originally a gold mining area, the town retains many historical buildings. They provide perfect venues for art galleries and great restaurants that serve dishes created from the fresh local produce and wines from the burgeoning local wineries.

The town is well serviced with education facilities – two primary schools and a regional secondary school – and has excellent sporting facilities including a golf course. A number of race meetings are held throughout the year at the picturesque Yea racecourse.
