Quandialla, New South Wales

Quandialla is a town in New South Wales, Australia. The town is located in the western Goldfields region halfway between Young and West Wyalong about west of Sydney. At the 2006 census, Quandialla and the surrounding area had a population of 312.

Quandialla is close to the Weddin Mountains National Park where the infamous bushrangers Ben Hall, Frank Gardiner and John Gilbert used to hideout between their raids on the odd bank or coach in Quandialla.

These days peace reigns in the park where there are some easy and some challenging walking trails. Pleasant relaxing picnic areas await the novice or experienced bushwalker.

Distinguished by silos and blank shopfronts, Quandillia is a small town set in the Mallee where Pasture Protection Board signs warn that you are in footrot country, and define the boundaries beyond which stock are not allowed to walk.

Grenfell, birthplace of the poet, short story-writer and tormented soul, Henry Lawson, lies beyond the National Park, 46km (29 miles) to the north-east, while the state's cherry capital, Young, lies about an hour's drive to the south-east.
