MARKETEERS !!!!

"Nestled in the foothills of the Stanley State Forest, this delightful town of wide tree-lined avenues and lovely vistas of lush, green hills and ancient hidden valleys was built on the gold discovered there in 1852.
The town's pioneering heritage is well preserved with original streetscapes featuring shady wooden verandas - 37 buildings in Yackandandah's High Street are listed on the National Estate Register.
These days the town is home to many artists and craftspeople who draw inspiration from the beauty of their surroundings, including ceramic artist, John Dermer, whose beautiful work is sought after by collectors around the world and talented sculptor, Ben Gilbert, whose amazing stainless steel creations grace the public spaces of many Australian towns.
Yackandandah's varied and busy events calendar includes the annual international Folk Festival (March each year) which has grown to become one of the most popular arts events in regional Victoria, as well as Spring Migration, one of Australia's premier regional Gay and Lesbian festivals
