How did Yack folk keep cool, or at least distracted from the heat, in days gone by? And just what got them so hot under the collar at swimming carnival time? Come in and find out at our new display.

More information on our current and previous exhibitions can be found on our blog.


Welcome to the Yackandandah Museum website. The aim of the Yackandandah Museum is to provide a place where information, stories and objects concerning Yackandandah and district can be collected, conserved, researched, stored, displayed and shared.

The Collection held by the Yackandandah and District Historical Society is a large and comprehensive collection of the many stories of this district, held in photographs, images, objects, registers, documents, letters, textiles, digital forms and research material.  It is almost fully catalogued on a specific cataloguing database, much of it is also either digitally scanned or photographed.

It is always a work-in-progress, receiving deposits, creating material or updating processes. Extensions to the purpose-built storage have added necessary storage space to a building originally built in 1996.  This collection is used for rotation of displays, our own publications, research and display, as well as outside requests for research, copies or access to material.  Specific requests must be made by appointment to allow for retrieval or collation of material.
