Wyandra

I’ve never been to Wyandra, but it seems that like many western towns it has a lot of old character houses and cottages with no one living in them – an indication of loss of population. I like these sketches of the old houses of Wyandra.

Wyandra, Qld

There is nothing quite like tiny towns. Those little dots on the map that most people drive through very quickly. Yet, we have found time and again that if we stay a night or two those little dots leave big imprints on our hearts.

Wyandra in Western Queensland was one of those places. With a population of 99 (2016) and 1 galah it’s located on the Mitchell Highway (Matilda Way) roughly halfway between Charleville and Cunnamulla. One blink and you’d miss it.

  1. We passed through Wyandra on our way to Cunnamulla and took photos of some of the old buildings. We also stopped in at the post office/cafe where we enjoyed a tasty morning tea and had a lovely chat with the young woman and her little daughter. She told me all about her school, which had just seven students. It’s those moments which make a visit so memorable.
