Looking for Yarrabin 10 of 10


We bump along a while longer and come to an intersection which is another dot on the map called "Twelve Mile". It's just a sign post to Wellington and a couple of other places.  Oh well that is two "towns" I can cross off my list.

A bit of googling when I got home revealed on page 10 that Yarrabin was once a small village with a shop, school, hall and church but there is nothing there now. I'm so glad I didn't look that up beforehand, we would have missed this delightful drive.

I've added Localities at 100 Towns

  1. A delightful little spot Joan .... Just the perfect place for a picnic amongst the blue.

  2. I suspected that Yarrabin might not exist anymore, oh well as the cliche goes, 'the journey is more important than the destination'.

  3. Love the photo. And the story. The road less traveled....

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
