WELCOME TO WARBURTON VALLEY!
Welcome to the land of the Wurundjeri people!
Warburton Valley CEDA (Community Economic Development Association) is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers. Our purpose is to promote sustainable economic development that enriches the lives of those who live in or have a close connection to the Warburton Valley and rely on its prosperity. Read more from here.
Warburton Valley is located in Yarra Ranges in Victoria and follows the 60-kilometre journey along the Warburton Highway and Woods Point Road from Lilydale to the Upper Yarra Dam. It includes towns such as Wandin, Seville, Woori Yallock, Launching Place, Yarra Junction, Warburton and surrounds. On this website you learn more about the communities along the way and get to know Warburton Valley CEDA business and community members.
Wurundjeri People are the original custodians of this land. They take their name from the Woiwurrung language word ‘wurun’ meaning the Manna Gum (Eucalyptus viminalis) which is common along ‘Birrarung’ (Yarra River), and ‘djeri‘, the grub which is found in or near the tree. Wurundjeri are the ‘Witchetty Grub People’ and their Ancestors have lived on this land for millennia. Under the townships of our valley you can read more about the recent white settlement history of the region.
As Warburton Valley is known for its natural beauty so instead of images of our main streets you will see the Valley through the eyes of our 'in-house' photographer Graeme Edwards, who has kindly supplied us with some of his amazing photos. You can read more about Graeme here.
Please, do get in touch, if you are a local community group, run a business in the Warburton Valley or want to become a supporter of our group for networking purposes. It would be great to have you on-board!

BUTTERCUP HILL B&B
Buttercup Hill is a traditional B&B where you wake up in the morning and a delicious breakfast is cooked for you. With cosy and comfortable rooms it offers you a great little getaway.
The B&B is only 10 minute-walk from town and the end of the rail-trail (you can lock your bike up at the B&B), but still in a quiet spot amongst the greenery.
Relax on the verandah and listen to the birds or make yourself comfortable in front of the fire with a good book and a cup of tea.
