The Y Water Discovery Centre incorporates a fully accredited Visitor Information Centre and interactive environmental interpretive displays to inform visitors about the importance of water resources and wetland ecology.

Located adjacent to the Yea Wetlands the Centre is a striking, architecturally designed building incorporating sustainable design elements.

The friendly Visitor Services team can provide information on a wide range of activities, points of interest, accommodation and dining options, and travel directions.

The Centre features a gift shop stocking a range of products including books, maps, jewellery and local produce.

The Yea Wetlands Kiosk (open Friday to Monday), offers great coffee, ice cream, sweet treats and an evolving menu of light snacks.
