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.

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

Despite the cold start this morning, our Butcher's BBQ enjoyed a steady stream of customers. Not as busy as some Saturdays but we still managed to take $143.55 in sales and donations. This money, was raised in aid of Kids In Need and will be distributed via the four Primary Schools in the WHYLD area to help families who are doing it tough. Thank you to Rod Brooke from Woori Yallock Butchers for donating the sausages and Woori Yallock Bakery for donating the bread. Thank you everyone for the support. ... See MoreSee Less
