Explore the wonderful Yanga Homestead and return to a time when Yanga was one of the Riverina’s most productive pastoral stations. Located in Yanga National Park, part of Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, the homestead was built around 1870, along with station outbuildings including stables, a gardener’s shed and station store. There are also rose gardens, restored and maintained by volunteers.

You can visit the Cook’s Cottage exhibition and wander around the grounds at any time. While you're here Marvel at the homestead’s unique Murray pine ‘drop log’ design. 

To see inside Yanga Homestead you'll need to pick up an audio guide and key from Yanga National Park Office, open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm.

After you've explored the homestead, take the opportunity to explore the surrounding area along Yanga Lake walking track. As you walk, you’ll pass Yanga Lake viewing deck – a great place to see evidence of the lake’s Aboriginal heritage and birdlife.
