WYNDHAM

Wyndham is a very small town that will only be encounted when doing the Eden/ Bombala route. This is a quiet winding road, whilst picturesque requires concentration. Wyndham itself, high in the hills is a heritage town with an interesting history. The name of the pub bears testimony to that assumption.

Established during the gold rush of the 1860s, Wyndham flourished with the demand for timber in the first half of this century. The reason for the name of the town is not readily assessed.

Wyndham General Store (also Post Office, service station, cafe), Wyndham primary school, Wyndham School of Arts Hall, Uniting Church Hall, Sports Ground, Stringy bark centre, Robbie Burns Hotel (local pub), Ultraviolet treated water.

“Wyndham has a stunning backdrop of Jingera rock, a sheer granite rock face. Nestling between the escarpment of Mount Darragh on one side, and under the watchful eye of Jingera Rock on the other, the surrounding foothills and forests are an ornithological paradise with a wide diversity of animals and birdlife, luring horse riding enthusiasts, 4WD adventurers, and bushwalkers.

 The markets are held on the fourth Sunday of every month, in the park or the hall. You're sure to enjoy this friendly country outing, find a bargain, or hear a good yarn. A range of locally produced goods, unique craft, plants and vegetables always are available.” (Source…Sapphire Coast Website)

The Wyndham War Memorial is on the eastern approach to the village.

The Anglican Church has ceased business; the United is a new structure, and the Catholic quite old.

The Robbie Burns Hotel is a must for refreshment.

Unless the traveler is Bombala bound (or has left) Wyndham is a diversion of significance, but to say you have had a refreshment at a genuine Robbie Burns pub may warrant the effort.
