Yackandandah Gorge Scenic Walk 

Bells Flat Road Yackandandah Victoria

The Gorge Walk will take you along the historic gorge, built as a tail race to sluice gravel and sand in the hope of finding gold.

The original cutting was made by pick, shovel and blasting powder, but was later deepened using dynamite creating the gorge you see today.

The scenic walk takes you along the twisting trail beside the creek with its cascading waterfalls and shady trees overhanging the trail.

For those unable to take the full trail, there is access to the gorge from Bells Flat Road. The trail is sign posted from the car park and takes about five minutes.

If you are feeling more energetic, you can walk along Yackandandah Creek from the town, which takes about an hour. The top of the Gorge is steep and requires the walker to be sure footed and moderately fit. There is a sign post and car park with information signs at the start of the walk.

Gold panning is no longer allowed in the Yackandandah Creek. If you wish to pan for gold in the area there are maps available from the Visitor Information Centre in town. Don’t forget to buy a license before heading out.
