DSCF7555It’s not just Yea’s ‘best kept secret’; more people need to find out, visit and enjoy themselves at this fantastic spot. The Yea Wetlands are right on the outskirts of Yea, between the two branches of the Yea River. To break the drive on a recent trip to Melbourne, I stopped at the wetlands and spent a lovely half-hour wandering the paths and boardwalks, with not another soul in sight.

Even more exciting is the new wetland visitor centre being built on the town side of the wetlands. Construction is well underway and due to open early next year.
