If you are planning to stay at the Yarragon Motel, we are sure that you are wondering about the attractions in the local area. Fortunately, there is something for visitors of all ages and interests.
If you enjoy playing a few holes, you’ll find that Yarragon is the ideal holiday destination, as there are a number of golf courses in the area. The Morwell Golf Club is about half an hour away; the Drouin, Moe and Yallourn Golf Clubs are 20 minutes away; the Warragul Golf Club is 15 minutes away; and the Trafalgar Golf Club is only 10 minutes away. All of the clubs welcome visitors, however, it should be noted that the greens may be closed during competitions.
The region is actually known for its delicious local produce, so you cannot visit Yarragon without stopping to sample some. In particular, we recommend the Ada River Winery, Drouin West Fruit & Berry Farm, Gippsland Food & Wine Deli, Marshal Green Deer & Venison Farm, Miraboo North Brewery, Kouark Vineyard & Winery, Piedmont Winery, Sunny Creek Fruit & Berry Farm and the Wild Dog Winery. Don’t forget to pick up a souvenir to take home!
If you are more of an art lover, there are a handful of galleries in the area that you should visit. The Baw Baw Arts Alliance is an artists run initiative that showcases the art of the region through exhibitions and workshops; Bob’s Shed specialises in retro furniture, collectibles and antiques; Lorraine’s Antiques is open Thursday to Sunday and public holidays or by appointment; and the Town & Country Gallery showcasing emerging and established artists.
Those who enjoy getting outside, either to breath in the fresh air or to explore the region a little more thoroughly, will also find plenty to see and do. In particular, we recommend: the Mount Worth State Park (with over 1040 hectares of natural forest and cleared pastures), Morwell Centenary Rose Garden (three acres of internationally recognised rose gardens), and Moondarra State Park (with 6292 hectares of forest, known for its wildflowers).
If you are interested in learning a little more about the history of Yarragon, you won’t be disappointed. We recommend paying a visit to the Trafalgar Holden Museum (which is housed in an old dairy factory and tells the complete story of the Holden brand), Old Gippstown (where you can step back in time to the 1850s and learn a little more about life in the region), and the Walhalla Goldfields Railway (which takes you through Stringers Creek Gorge).
There are a number of walks and trails in the surrounding area for visitors to enjoy. At the Mount Worth State Park, try your hand at The Giant’s Circuit (which follows an old tramline) or the McDonald’s Track (where two strategically placed lookouts provide panoramic views over the Latrobe Valley, the Great Dividing Range and Westernport Bay). The Moe to Yallourn Trail is also worth the walk – it is mostly flat and about 8km one way.
