Turning Wave Festival’s new home, Yass lies on the junction of the Hume and Barton Highways and serves as an important interchange, connecting Sydney, Melbourne and the Australian Capital Territory. The Yass Valley is rich in both European and Aboriginal cultural heritage with the Irish playing a significant role in the development of the area. The main street is lined with beautiful historic buildings and some of the town’s other attractions include a Museum, Yass Railway Heritage Centre and Cooma Cottage, a National Trust property. Yass has a good selection of eateries and accommodation, cafes and many great local specialty shops and is just a stone’s throw from some of Australia’s finest wine producers. Make Yass your Festival destination.
