The Yea Wetlands have been transformed from an inaccessible floodplain wetland to become one of Yea’s best kept secrets. Just a short walk from the town centre you can lose yourself in the peace and tranquillity of the natural bush and riverine floodplain wetlands.

Walk down the Franklin Track amid River Red gums and Silver Wattle across the cable suspension bridge and watch for platypus or native water rats foraging for food along the river bed. Look also for for koalas and remember to stop, look and listen for the many bird and animal species native to the area. Interpretive signs that describe the uniquely Australian aquatic mammals found here and also how the Aboriginals used and treated the wetlands.
