Yea River Wetlands Park
The Yea River Wetlands Park is on the Yea River behind Cummins Reserve.
The wetlands comprise of a series of billabongs and a branch of the Yea River formed through channel changes in the river, many years ago, before white settlement.
The special beauty of the Yea River wetland is that it is right on the edge of town, you will see it from the road as you drive through the town.
A wetlands walking trail has been developed that is accessible to all fitness levels
Yea River Wetlands Walk brochures are available at the Yea Visitor Information Centre on 5797 2663.
On the outskirts of the town, I saw the beautiful wetlands Maple, the Box elder (Acer Negundo). I have one growing in my own garden.
Yea is a small rural community just one and a half hour’s drive from Melbourne. It makes a good half way mark, stop when we are travelling from Mooroopna, our summer home studio, near Shepparton to see our daughter, Carla and her family in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I have always loved driving through Yea, stopping to walk in the area and painting the landscapes in the area.
The surrounding area is ideal for walks and scenic drives. It has some of the most beautiful natural landscapes, the Murrindindi Cascades,
The Valley of a Thousand Hills, the lovely Killingworth River drive and the developing wine areas in many of the surrounding valleys.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
