Situated 75km from Orange, the village of Yeoval sits on the cross roads of Molong, Dubbo and Wellington, making it a convenient place to visit when exploring the region.

One of Australia’s greatest poets, Banjo Paterson, spent his first seven years of childhood in this village and there are many reflections of Banjo’s life in Yeoval including the picturesque Buckinbah Park.

If you’re driving from Cumnock to Yeoval keep your eyes out for the bikes in the trees. This is part of the Yeoval Mulga Bill Bicycle Festival held in July each year. The festival celebrates Banjo Paterson's childhood in Yeoval with a bike ride from Cumnock to Yeoval. 5000 people turn out for the event and Yeoval's main street is filled with street stalls, art shows, demonstrations and live music.

Proactive and dedicated community groups work on many projects and have recently restored the riverbank area into a beautiful park where you can stop and enjoy a picnic or lunch from one of the nearby takeaway stores.

Yeoval is proving to be popular location for treechangers with many moving from Sydney suburbs to the relaxed lifestyle in Yeoval. Yeoval has a Central School and a Catholic Primary School, attracting students from Cumnock and surrounding areas.
