Arts, culture and heritage in Yass
This historic country town is the home of explorer Hamilton Hume. Discover heritage treasures along the town's Historic Walk and Drive; you can even follow in the footsteps of explorers on the Hume and Hovell Walking Track.
Nestled in the picturesque Yass Valley on the banks of the Yass River, the township of Yass is within easy reach of Sydney and Canberra. Its rich colonial history is evident in the enduring architecture and heritage locations.
Yass is also the perfect base from which to explore the many natural attractions and country towns in the Yass Valley area. Hunt out adventurous activities, such as mountain trail horseriding, bushwalking and caving. At Wee Jasper Reserves, you can go camping, fishing, swimming, walking or picnicking.
The Yass Valley area produces an abundance of cool-climate produce and is a renowned food and wine destination. Taste the offerings of Canberra district wineries or visit the fantastic local restaurants.
