Town Profiles

Yackandandah

Yackandandah is one of the jewels within Indigo with its wide tree lined streets, welcoming locals and close proximity to the regional hub of Albury/Wodonga. The area of Yackandandah was first mentioned when Hume and Hovell passed through the surrounding valleys in 1824 and soon after it was settled in 1837. Gold was discovered in 1852 in Yackandandah Creek and in 1856 the township was surveyed and the sale of land began along with several substantial buildings which still remain today. Heritage Victoria and the National Trust list many of the buildings and trees.

Yackandandah has its own hospital, service station (run by very friendly and helpful staff), plenty of eateries and an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and accommodation options for travellers.
