The ephemeral Yea Wetlands are situated on 32 ha of crown land floodplain between two branches of the unregulated Yea River. The Goulburn Valley Highway splits the area in two.

The Northern Wetlands have been progressively developed over the past 12 years and now boast a 30m cable suspension bridge, 2.5 km of walking track, raised walkways, bird hides, interpretive signs, picnic tables and a free electric BBQ. While the Committee has a long term vision to develop and link the Southern Wetlands with the 100+km Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail it is currently focusing on weed management and the recently opened$1.9m Environmental Interpretive / Visitor Information Centre.

The Centre was an initiative of the Yea Wetlands Committee with funding being provided by the Yea Wetlands Trust, and State Government (Melbourne Water, Office of Water (DSE) and Regional Development Victoria).
