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 and Yellingbo with a shared facility for the other three towns at Hillcrest in 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 had beautiful weather for our Butcher's BBQ on Saturday the 10th of November. It was a bit quiet, but we still raised $139.50. Once again, thank you to Rod Brooke for the sausages and use of the BBQ. Thank you also to the helpers on the day. ... See MoreSee Less

Well, we had another Butcher's BBQ last Saturday 29th of September and considering the weather and the fact it was the AFL Grand Final, we didn't do too badly. We raised $143.15 and this will go towards future plans we have for WHYLD. Once again, thank you to Rod Brooke, our local butcher who donates the sausages, bbq and gas each week for similar community events. ... See MoreSee Less

Well, we had another great sausage sizzle at the Woori Butcher's today. We raised $390.90 for the Burrumbuttock Hay Run. Bendigo Bank Woori Yallock (Wydcom Financial Services) have pledged to contribute an additional $5,000 as well. Again, thank you to Rod Brookes, our local Woori butcher, for your very generous contribution to this cause. Rod donates all the sausages, the BBQ and the gas to community fund raising each week. Thank you also to the helpers today. ... See MoreSee Less
