Weddin Mountains Region
A COUNTRY OASIS IN THE WEDDIN MOUNTAINS REGION
Step back in time, relax and enjoy authentic country village hospitality with a visit to Quandialla - the rural oasis nestled in the Weddin Mountains Region. Set in the shadow of the Weddin Mountains National Park, Quandialla is worth a visit to explore local history, bushwalk to Ben Hall’s Cave, discover Seaton’s Farm, enjoy the newest art installation at the Memorial Hall - the Quandialla Mural, cool off with a dip in the local pool or a cold one and a chat at the end of your adventure.
The village lies in the southwest corner of the Weddin Shire and is within easy reach of the larger towns of Grenfell, Young, Temora and West Wyalong for a day trip. It’s also a wonderful place to stay or camp to take advantage of all the area has to offer.
Established in 1914, Quandialla, was a product of the railway which was catalyst for the development of a strong agricultural economy. Today the village is distinguished by imposing grain silo’s, the north/south rail line, an active collection of businesses and a highly committed local community.
If history is your thing… don’t miss the historic Quandialla main street which is famous for appearing in the Logie winning Australian mini-series “1915” in the 1980’s. Don McAlpine, one of Australia’s most distinguished filmmakers, was also born in Quandialla.
Buildings in the village are indicative of the early 1900’s. The community has a strong pride and interest in sharing the history which is set out in the centenary publication, “Quandialla, The First 100 Years”, produced in 2014.
