Yarrawonga has been one of regional Victoria’s fastest-growing communities over the past 20 years. With a booming 1,500+ new homes built since the mid-90s, everyone from retirees to young couples and families are moving from metro hubs like Melbourne and Geelong to seek the easy life.

Our year-round sunny weather, lower living costs and waterside lifestyle are in demand. For instance, you could own a four bedroom home on a larger than average block – mere minutes’ stroll from the water – within the Silverwoods estate from just $370,100.

By the way, did you hear the First Home Owners Grant for regional areas has been extended until mid-2021? That’s an extra $20,000 for First Home Buyers towards their new home and brand new life in Yarrawonga. Here are a few other great reasons that you should know about calling Yarrawonga home.

Local Life

If camping, bush strolls and watching or even playing local sports are a major part of your ideal lifestyle, Yarrawonga is the place for you. Our football, netball, tennis and skiing clubs are at the centre of our community – we even have rowing and bowls clubs to keep you occupied. There’s an emerging arts scene here too: do check out the world-class artworks splashed on silos trailing from here to Benalla, sometime. Of course, the Murray River region is the ultimate golfing destination. Take your pick of surrounding golf courses with our own Black Bull 18 hole Championship Golf Course as the number 1 choice.

A Taste of the Country

In town, the food scene consists of idyllic fish and chips dinners by the Murray River, pub grub and picnics in the park. There are plenty of casual restaurants and cafes: you could eat out once a week for months without repeating! Foodies will love Stock & Barrel or Elizabeths at The Sebel Yarrawonga, featuring locally sourced seasonal produce, or perhaps explore the nearby Rutherglen wine region.

A major bonus is that Yarrawonga has a bounty of the freshest produce direct from the maker or grower. A picturesque Farmers’ Market runs monthly on the foreshore. Pop into Rich Glen Olive Estate, Byramine Homestead, Manto Produce and Katamatite Garlic anytime for wonderful oils, craft beers and ciders, fruit and vegetables and spices.

And, if you fancy a glass of Tempranillo, Silverwoods is only a lazy half hour away from the renowned Rutherglen wine region.

The Essentials

The Victorian Planning Authority has identified Yarrawonga as a key regional centre for future services, homes and jobs so our resources and infrastructure are set to become even better via world-class upgrades. For now, education-wise, families are well catered to locally from preschool to VCE. Tertiary education is accessible too with about 10 big name university campuses and TAFEs only an hour away.

Situated conveniently right here in town is a large variety of retailers to cover all your everyday shopping needs. We have Target, Woolworths, IGA and Foodworks, plus Bunnings is only five minutes away for all of your DIY project and gardening needs.

Water is Life

Studies show that living near the water correlates to better mental health. In Yarrawonga, you can easily enjoy days filled with water activities amid a natural wonderland of stunning landscapes, within the enviable Sun Country temperate climate.

The lake precinct offers every water sport imaginable and you can opt to take your daily jog along the foreshore. Imagine making a habit of fishing for fresh Murray Cod for Sunday dinner every week. Or finally having a reason to buy that boat you’ve always had on your wish-list.

To get a taste of our unique Yarrawonga lifestyle, why not holiday here later this year once social distancing requirements come to an end? Our sun, our water, our people and our visible nightly stars could lead you straight to finding your new home.
