Juandah Historical site –
Wandoan has a few places to camp but we chose Juandah historical site. On driving in, I felt immediately that we had made the right choice. There was old machinery, rustic buildings and open spaces
A chap came out to great us and gave us some basic info before his wife popped over. She gave us a leaflet with the rest of the details about the site. We gave her our $15 donation and parked in-front of the Blacksmiths. The Blacksmiths has some old blacksmith stuff in it but the other half actually has a couple of sinks, old fridge etc. for tourists to use.
The lady told us the gates get locked at 5.30 pm and opened the next morning at 8.30 am. If needed they would open them for us when ever we needed. This was pretty cool as we were the only ones there and could walk around the old place when ever we wanted.
From the old buildings with old farming machinery to part of a building with the original chimney fire place, there is so much to look at.
My favorite place was a building with an old kitchen. It had an old fridge with ice making compartment. It must have been the original design? There’s also an old washing machine and stove not forgetting old phones and wall paper.
There is a long building with row’s of glass cases containing everything from old dentist equipment to old cameras.
With so much history and interesting things you just can’t help taking photos. As the sun set I took way to many but I got some good memories.
