Juandah' Station, selected in 1853, was the beginnings of the Wandoan township. In the 1890s, a wayside hotel was built there and became a resting place for travellers. By the end of the century the hotel was well established and a township was formed which was later named Wandoan in 1926.
Today the town is still a great resting place half way between Miles and Taroom. Stop off on your way north or south and follow the local Heritage Trail. The trail leads to 23 points of interest, including the Juandah site and the restful Waterloo Plains Environmental Park with its lakes, picnic areas and water birds.
The 'Wandoan Windmill' marks the town entrance on the Highway across from a colourful mural painted on the town's main water tank. Another mural is located close by in the Community Cultural Centre and pictorially shows local history. It is mounted on a huge piece of sandstone from the district.
Drop in at the Wandoan Information Centre on Royd Street to get the locals perspective on what to see and do in the area.
