Valley to Sea Touring Route
Leg 1: Morwell to Yinnar
16 km/10 miles, about 15 minutes
Only a short drive south of Morwell along the Strzelecki Highway, named for the beautiful rolling hills that comprise the landscape, Yinnar is tucked into the Morwell River Valley with views of the Strzelecki Ranges to the west and the Jeeralang Hills to the east.
This lively village offers plenty of opportunity to unwind and explore. Take some time out with the latest exhibitions at the ARC Gallery, browse the charming general store, or paddle out onto the warm waters of the Hazelwood Pondage.
Time your visit to make it to Yinnar on the last Wednesday of the month to revel alongside the Strzelecki Stringbusters, a unique Australian blues based band that never fails to get the Yinnar Hotel jumping.
Head southwest along Jumbuk Road to the Morwell National Park, worth a scheduled stop for a picnic or a short walk through the many walking tracks. Fosters Gully is a favourite for taking in the sights.
