So many towns of the Outback can claim their very existence directly to the laying of the great inland railway systems. Wyandra is such a town.
Being the halfway point between Charleville and Cunnamulla, a railway settlement was established. In 1898 a school was established with about 60 pupils, which is about the same number of today’s total population.
If you are interested in outback architecture, this town retains some great old buildings. A heritage trail, guiding visitors past old and unusual buildings, offers many photographic opportunities.
