One of Yea’s best kept secrets, the Y Water discovery centre at the Yea Wetlands offers a unique look at the history, cultural heritage and flora and fauna of this special place.

The Wetlands are a short walk from the town centre and accessible via a boardwalk, walking track and footbridges.

Bushwalking, birdwatching and simply relaxing and taking in the surroundings are all recommended, while the nearby Y water discovery centre offers interactive interpretive displays on the ecology of the Yea Wetlands.

The main walking trail through the wetlands has its own story to tell. The Franklin track is named after John Franklin, an important figure in the history of Yea, and includes signage about the local aboriginal heritage. Some of the trees in the area bear the scars of bark removed for basket, canoe and shield construction.
