Welcome to Wyndham

Wyndham village is a small rural hamlet on Mount Darragh Road, in the Bega Valley Shire; 25 minutes inland from Pambula and 40 minutes from Bombala, situated in a pocket of farmland at the foot of the Monaro escarpment, with an altitude of 300 metres. The 25km section of winding mountain road, up to the 900 metre summit of Mount Darragh to the west, is a favourite  of motorbike enthusiasts.

The village is set in beautiful country, steeped in Aboriginal and early European history and which includes the extensive South East Forests National Park and Egan Peaks Nature Reserve, including the impressive Jingera Rock monolith, which overlooks the town.
