Wandoan

The quiet wheat and cattle town of Wandoan is the perfect stopover between Miles and Taroom as you travel along the Leichhardt Highway.

The fertile Brigalow country that yields strong harvests and healthy cattle isn't just a picturesque backdrop. It's home to friendly people, a proud heritage and some of the best bush camping and fishing spots on the Western Downs. Wandoan Information Centre in O'Sullivan Park on Zupp Road is a good place to get the local low-down.

There are a few must dos when you're in town. Take a picnic to enjoy around the lakes of the restful Waterloo Plain Environmental Park. Many waterbirds thrive in the wetlands. The Wandoan Heritage Trail will lead you to more than 20 points of interest including the Juandah Historical Site, with its informative panels about the Soldier Settlers and Leichhardt, and to O'Sullivan Park to meet a local hero. Well, you'll find the statue of Mick the dog that saved his master's life after he fell from his horse on Juandah station. Mick ran home for help with a message scratched on a tobacco tin tucked under his collar.

For a small town there sure is a lot going on. Enjoy a great day of football at the Lindsay Williams shield in February; mix it with the locals for Wandoan Diggers Race Day in March and the Polocrosse Carnival in June; and feel the excitement of the Bucking for Cancer Rodeo in April.
