Yackandandah Place Plan

Ongoing consultation



We're developing the Yackandandah Place Plan, a document outlining a vision and set of actions for co-designing an even brighter future for Yackandandah. 

In May you told us what makes Yackandandah unique and how it could be improved in the future. Now you’re invited to give feedback on the draft vision and actions for the Yackandandah Place Plan. 

What's next?

Round two engagement kicked off on August 1 and is your chance to to identify what’s working, what needs to be improved and if there are any great ideas missing from the vision and actions so far.

Thanks to everyone who visited us at a pop-up or attended the community workshop. For those who couldn't make it to the engagement sessions, take our short survey below to share your ideas.

Rail Trail Survey

We want to get your feedback and your ideas on the possible shared Rail Trail path through Yackandandah as part of the Beechworth to Yackandandah Rail Trail. View the route map and take the survey here.

The Beechworth to Yackandandah rail trail will be a world class cycling adventure for cyclists and visitors to the Southern Hemisphere’s premier Rail Trail in North East Victoria.

In Yackandandah, the rail trail will aim to meet the following objectives:

  • To provide an ‘arrival’ in town and a strong and convenient connection to the businesses in the Main Street
  • To provide a safe route with an easy flow through town
  • To create connections for local community to Yackandandah’s facilities, including shops, school, recreation reserves and other trails
  • To cater for convenient car parking, events and other amenities (trail head) for visitors wanting to access the trail in Yackandandah

Both surveys close 5pm Friday 16 August 2019.
