Slow down the Yarragon way

Slow down the Yarragon way

It’s time to explore our own backyard in this special travel episode to Yarragon in West Gippsland, Victoria.

With an unmistakable village feel, glorious heritage buildings and a deluge of shops to potter and browse, Yarragon’s charms extend well beyond a leg-stretch on the highway.

Just 90 minutes east of Melbourne, Yarragon is a place where you can slow down and recharge the batteries, powered by a potent dose of country calm. 

The town is home to vibrant laneway cafes, cosy brunch nooks, coffee roasters and providores heaving with local delicacies.

Meet my friends Kristy Plumridge who recently moved from Melbourne to West Gippsland and owns The Ridge House and Green Hills Farm.

And Jo Wolswinkle who is a born and bred West Gippslandian, and owns Town & Country Gallery.

Kristy and Jo share with us their start up stories, how they’ve coped with COVID and share all the best places to stay, eat, shop and explore in Yarragon.
