Drive through the valley and expect to be surprised by the fascinating roadside creations. There is a large variety of creative scarecrows to enjoy including a few Coronavirus-themed and bushfire-themed scarecrows.

The scarecrows are spread out among the whole valley so take a drive through Yarramalong, Cedar Brush Creek and Ravensdale to spot them.

According to one participant Melissa, most of them are along Yarramalong Road and only two are on side streets. Her entry #65 Crow Mater at Yarrabee Farm is just past the service station by about two kilometers
