The Yass Tribune is steeped in tradition but remains as relevant today as it was in 1857, when it first chronicled the lives of local residents. These days the Yass Tribune offers an easy access online news service which covers local news and human interest stories as well as local sporting events and other community stories.
The Tribune focuses on a broad area from Bookham in the South to Gunning in the North. Bowning, Dalton and Boorowa to the West and across to Hall at the ACT border. It includes the villages of Murrumbateman, Hall, Binalong, Gunning, Gundaroo, Sutton and Wee Jasper.
With a population in excess of more than 18,000, Yass offers a friendly rural setting ideal for tourists wishing to explore the Southern Tablelands Canberra Region of NSW.
Yass has long been known as the fine wool centre of the world. A growing number of cool climate vineyards carry on the fine winemaking traditions established by our first settlers. Tourism is strong in the area with attractions such as Wee Jasper with its limestone caves, fossil formations and excellent camping and bushwalking spots.
Its proximity to ACT is making a positive impact on the Yass population with the area proving a popular country lifestyle within a commutable distance to the capital.
