The Y Water Discovery Centre incorporates a fully accredited Visitor Information Centre and interactive environmental interpretive displays to inform visitors about the importance of water resource management and local wetland ecology.

Located adjacent to the Yea Wetlands the Centre is a striking, architecturally designed building incorporating sustainable design elements.

The friendly Visitor Services team can provide information on a wide range of activities, points of interest, accommodation and dining options, and travel directions.

The Centre features a gift shop stocking a range of products including books, maps, jewellery and local produce. Many of the items are hand-crafted by local artisans and producers who offer a unique and very special range of products.

Guided tours of the Wetlands which include a Devonshire tea are available as well as school holiday activity programs and sessions for school groups.

Outside the Centre is the impressive indigenous garden Badji Baanang. The plants found in the garden are representative of plants found across Taungurung Country and the garden also incorporates information about indigenous plants and the species that depend on these plants for survival.
