One of the best ways to absorb the Yass region's vibe, taste its treats, sample its wines, and luxuriate in its hospitality is to follow The Poachers Way, a joint effort by local producers, chefs, artisans, and hosts to showcase unique produce and lifestyles.
Start the trail north at Lake George, Canberra itself, or the Barton Highway at Murrumbateman with stops like Robyn Rowe's Chocolates, visiting numerous cellar doors along the way, and even explore by horseback with Burnelee Excursions.
Unique fine dining and local produce is found at Poacher's Pantry or Gundaroo's famous Grazing Restaurant, Capital Wines Epicurean Centre and the historic character-filled Colonial Inn. Experience Flint at Shaw Vineyard, reminiscent of the great vineyard restaurants from the country regions of France and Italy.
The Poachers Way is one of Australia's most memorable travelling experiences and you'll want to return again and again.
