Y is for Yarrowyck


Yarrowyck was once a village but is now a rural locality of scattered beef and sheep farms, these days it is most famous for the Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve. The reserve is open eucalypt woodland with granite outcrops and boulders. Traditionally it is the territory Anaiwan people who left reminders of their presence with rock art.

Sadly we did not have time to walk to the rock overhang that contains the art work. Thanks to Armidale Tourism and the CMA for the images.
