The Yarra Hotel is situated approximately 4km from the Melbourne CBD.
It was built in 1855 and from 1855-1864 known as Mackay's Hotel or Mackay's Family Hotel or Mackay's Inn. The first proprietor was Mrs Margaret Mackay. From 1864 it was renamed The Yarra Hotel. The Mahon family owned the Yarra in the 1960s (John Mahon played for Collingwood), John's father Jack Mahon was behind the bar. In the 1970s the family of another Collingwood player, John Dellamarta, took over the pub. Marion & Con Trovato ran the Yarra from 1991-2012. Before Collingwood's first ever game in May 1892, players changed at the back of the hotel before jogging across Johnston Street to Victoria Park (built in 1879). This continued for a month while the grandstand was being built
