Yambuk has Anglican and Catholic churches, a general store, the Yambuk Inn hotel built in 1871, which is listed on the Australia and Victorian historic buildings registers, a public hall and a caravan park at the lake.
Codrington Wind Farm
Just to the west of Yambuk is Codrington, not a town or village but a farming area which is now the site of a new type of farm – a wind farm. Victoria’s first wind farm was built here in 2001. More than 30 turbines have been built to provide clean, green energy for Victoria. Tours of the wind farm by groups can be arranged however the towers are easily sighted from the Princes Highway.
