Yea has a very impressive hidden secret… just on the Northern side of the Yea Township you will find the Yea Wetlands.
The ephemeral Yea Wetlands is situated on 32ha of crown land between two branches of the Yea River. The Yea Wetlands is cared for by a committee of management and some very proud and enthusiastic community members who have attracted funding to create beautiful improvements that deliver ecological, social and economic benefits to the environment and community.
You can find in the wetlands of Yea, the fossils of some of the earliest known land plants in the world, dating back 400 million years ago! Also keep an eye out for the sacred Kingfisher as you meander along the beautiful boardwalks.
The Yea Wetlands is a must see for visitors planning a trip to Yea.
