Dec 2019, Yackandandah, Vic
We recently spent a few restful days visiting a friend in Yackandandah, Vic. This delightful small town is one of those places that the world forgot for a time and thus now its commercial precinct is heritage listed. Residential streets are adorned with Victorian era cottages and rambling flower gardens.
Nestled in a small valley crisscrossed with small burbling creeks it is usually busy with day trippers from the larger towns in North Eastern Victoria. We got lucky, the streets were quiet, the weather was warm, and the town was draped in a pre-Christmas hush. The caravan park was shady, I even saw a trout in the creek. The lamb & mint pies from Gum Tree Pies were as good as the last time and the time before that. They’re high on our Pie Chart. The Star Hotel which we had gazed at longingly a few months ago was serving long thirst-quenching gin & tonics and our share plate of ribs was so good that I want to go back again. Soon!
