Yackandandah Attractions

The Athenaeum
• Now housing the Visitor Centre, this historic building was built in 1878, and later housed approximately 3,000 books, being the social and intellectual centre of the town. It contained: “two reading rooms, a few stuffed birds, a boomerang or two”. A full sized billiard able was added in 1899. The temple-like composition of the facade, common to many Athenaeums and Masonic Lodges, is of particular interest.
