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 resource management and local wetland ecology. Located adjacent to the Yea Wetlands the Centre is a striking, architecturally designed building incorporating sustainable design elements. A range of programs for primary and secondary school groups are offered as well as guided tours of the Wetlands which include a devonshire tea. The friendly team can provide information on a wide range of activities and points of interest, accommodation and dining options, and travel directions. The Centre also incorporates a gift shop stocking a range of products for sale including books, maps, games & toys, jewellery, skincare, local produce and clothing. Many of the items are hand-crafted by local artisans and producers who offer a unique and very special selection of products. Outside there is a picnic area with BBQ facilities, ample on-site parking and a recreational vehicle dump point.

THis is well worth the time to stop. My children learnt about caring for the waterways with such a terrific interactive display. Very well done. They were still referring to things they'd learnt days later! Extremely well presented and lovely friendly staff!
