Welcome to WHYLD Country

The WHYLD district is located in the Upper Yarra Valley within the Shire of Yarra Ranges in a rural and bushland environment on the eastern fringe of Melbourne. The Warburton Highway, Yarra River and Warburton Trail all traverse the WHYLD community in an east-west direction. The largest town on the highway from Melbourne is Woori Yallock with a range of shops, businesses, Community Bank and Post Office. Further shops and businesses are dotted along the highway through Launching Place. South of the highway on the Healesville Koo-Wee Rup Road lies Yellingbo with a General Store. Primary Schools form the central hub for the towns of Hoddles Creek and Don Valley, lying south and north of the highway respectively.

CFA buildings are situated in Hoddles Creek, Yellingbo, Don Valley and Woori Yallock. The river and creek flats and undulating hills of the WHYLD district make it a prime agricultural area with vineyards, orchards, berries, market gardens, flowers and pasture. Nearby forests such as Kurth Kiln Regional Park and Yellingbo Conservation Reserve provide opportunities for bushwalking, bird-watching and camping. The Yarra River and smaller waterways provide access for recreational fishing.

We decked the hall for our WHYLD Christmas dinner. Unfortunately we had such a great time we forgot to get the pics with people! Many thanks for Karen & Albert Meeuwissen at Nerrigundah Berries, and Jordan Toman at Everlasting Farm, both in Hoddles Creek, for their generous donations of delicious berries. Thanks also to Michael Goodrich at Yarra Ranges Council for his generous donations of our Christmas Tree and speakers. A very Happy Christmas to all our WHYLD community. We look forward to continuing activities at the hall in the New Year! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to the Hoddles Creek Red Cross and all the other stallholders, visitors and volunteers for supporting our Summer Festive minimarket at the Don Valley Hall yesterday. The sun shone and the people came...alarms, sirens and bells rang! Dancers moved to the drummers beat while Santa delivered his Christmas treats. ... See MoreSee Less

I think everyone is stretched to the limit in these trying times so we think it best to cancel our Butcher's BBQs for the rest of the year and resume in the new year. Thank you to everyone for your support and we will see you in 2022. ... See MoreSee Less
