Enjoy Devonshire Tea in Historic House at Yandina
Pioneer Road, Yandina is home to some very interesting places for tourists to visit The Ginger Factory, The Pioneer Coffee Roastery, Nutworks and at the roundabout at the beginning of Pioneer Road is the fascinating Yandina Historic House.

Volunteers from the Yandina Historical Village manage the house, along with its Craft Shop, Art Gallery, Information Centre, Cafe and Museum. It is open daily from 9.30 am to 3 pm. Coffee, Devonshire Teas and Light Lunches are available - with cute tables and chairs inside the house and around the verandah.

One room is full of history books and other historical memorabilia, and the volunteers are happy to talk with visitors about the local history. In the Gallery there are many paintings and a wide variety of pottery.

In the craft shop there are many items made locally knitting, crochet, sewing, and more.

The town of Yandina had many names in its early history, and was eventually renamed Yandina a local aboriginal name. "The name Yandina honours our first inhabitants and means to go on foot: yan, go, dinna on foot. Yan-dinna was the name of the area of ancient bora rings and tribal ground in present-day Yandina Creek." from the website.

The house was built in 1899 to 1900 at Bridges, which is just a little north of the town, but was relocated after the upgrading of the Bruce Highway, around 1996. You can read more of the history of the house and Yandina here.

It is FREE to visit the Yandina Historic House, but they welcome donations.
