YEOVAL

Experience the artistic country culture and rural landscape of Yeoval on the doorstep of adventure in the Goobang National Park.

Famous Australian storyteller and poet, A.B “Banjo” Paterson, spent the first seven years of his life growing up on the family property ‘Buckinbah’ on the edge of Yeoval. His piece “First Impressions” tells of his memories growing up in the area.

Yeoval has embraced the poet’s connection to the area developing the Banjo Paterson Bush Park lined with works of art. The Poet’s Walk features carved slate seats and clay tile walls and a bike track.

The Bush Park also features one of the largest public artworks in Australia – a bronze abstract sculpture of English Sculptor, Henry Moore, weighing in at six tonnes and six metres high.

The Mulga Bill Festival Incorporated invites all visitors to enjoy a hand held ausio experience at the Banjo Paterson….more than a Poet Exhibition located opposite the Bush Park at the Wellington end of the Main Street.

Yeoval is situated on the doorstep of the Goobang National Park which is popular for camping and walking. The town has a Historical Museum and some nice examples of old buildings with character including a country style pub and the old Trading Post building.
