A tranquil walk along the Banjo Paterson Poets trail along the Buckinbah Creek of Yeoval, lined with slate seats and etched with Paterson writings, leads to the ruins of the original Paterson homestead, where Banjo spent his childhood over a century ago.
It is here at the very isolated “Buckinbah Station” in his childhood years that Banjo Paterson met so many of the characters and heard so many of the stories he wrote about in later life. The large sandstone Picnic Seat at the ruins was dedicated to the memory of Banjo by the great Australian Actor Jack Thompson.
The walk was designed to enhance Yeoval's connection with Paterson and provide facilities and attractions to interest the traveller.
