Yangan

There's also an excellent country butcher and a couple of home-style cafes in town. Experience Allora's strong sense of history on the signed Heritage Trail. It takes walkers from one historic building to the next, street banners reflect the theme, and a series of murals at the gates of the showground depict local milestones.
