The township of Yacka dates from 1896. It was named from the Ngadjuri Aboriginal people's name Yackamoorundie for the region, meaning "sister to the big river". The town was reasonably prosperous As witnessed by the Institute Building. But changes in farming methods and the contraction of government services under the name of economic rationalism in the last decades of the twentieth century saw services removed from Yacka, including the railway, the Post Office and the school. Private businesses, too, folded in this period - the hotel, the bank and the general store all closed their doors. Today the town is in a sad state with deteriorating Vacant buildings.
