The Old Coach Road, which is a section of the National Trail and the Seven Mile Gold Diggings area are quite popular for these pursuits.

Bird Watching is also a popular activity here with bird watchers from all over Australia congregating, hopeful of catching a glimpse of a rare Black-breasted Button Quail that is known to frequent only a small section of forest country between Yarraman and the Tarong Community Park. Plenty of other wildlife makes its home in Yarraman district. If you look carefully you may come across a Brush Turkey, Goanna, Wallaby, Bilby or even a shy Platypus.
