Wandandian ~ “Home of Lost Lovers”

Wandandian Progress Association is a voluntary, not-for-profit, non-political, non-sectarian body of local citizens which represents the residents of Wandandian in their dealings with government departments etc and is therefore Wandandian’s Community forum. The Association also owns the local Community Hall which it hires out to the public for a variety of functions. Not being owned by Shoalhaven City Council its repair and maintenance is provided by the volunteers who make up the Association.

This website is designed to be a community forum and information resource and it is hoped that there will be many contributions from the community, because it will only realise its full potential if members of the community utilise it.

We welcome all comments that are constructive. When submitting your comments, please beware of slander and libel considerations.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions for the website. Better still, come and join us at our meetings. We are a small band of volunteers and we meet at the Wandandian Progress Association Hall, D2683 Princes Hwy, Wandandian at 7:30pm on the 1st Tuesday of every month except January. All residents and ratepayers are welcome to join us.

The Association was formed in 1952 to undertake the fund-raising for, and building of,  a school-master’s residence following a special meeting of the then operating Wandandian School P&C Association. Since that time the Association has undertaken many other projects, including the building of the community hall by volunteer labour.

    My name is Sandra and I am purchsing a property in Wandean Rd.
    I found this web site in searching for information on the area.
    I would like to know more and at some stage be envolved with the community of Wandanean.

      Welcome to our community Sandra. One of the best ways to get involved with our community is to come along to the Progress Association or Rural Fire Brigade meetings in the first instance. The next Progress Association meeting will be next Tuesday 7th September at 7:30pm at the Wandandian Hall and the Fire Brigade’s next meeting will be the following Tuesday at 7:30pm at the Fire Station.

      There is also a social Tennis group who play on Wednesday mornings at the courts adjacent to the hall. I’m sure you would be most welcome to join them.

      Although it is currently out of print, one of the best sources of information about Wandandian is “Wandrawandian (Home of Lost Lovers): A History of Wandandian”, by Val Windley. The Shoalhaven Library at Nowra has a copy of the book in the local history section. A revised edition of the book was begun by Val before she died a few years ago and it has been completed by her children. Plans are in place for it to be launched at the Wandandian Postal Services Sesquicentennial Celebrations which will be held in December this year.

      I look forward to meeting you.
