What’s it like in Wyndham?

Wyndham is a rural village in Southland that I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for. When we lived in The Catlins we often stopped at the dairy in Wyndham for a burger. They did great burgers and it was a convenient place to stop and have refreshments when going on a drive. Earlier this month, 08 March 2018, we detoured through Wyndham briefly – our sole purpose being to take a few photos!

First seven photos taken by Nigel…


Rodgers Garage is very prominent on the main intersection in town. In this photo you can see the road sign for the main street which is called ‘Balaclava Street’.

View down Balaclava Street, from residential area toward the town centre…

In the above photo you can see a distant large building on the left side of Balaclava Street. Its the old Post Office building, featured in the next photo.

Here’s a close-up of the arched entry into the old Post Office.

On the other side of the road, a little further down, is a little group of shops with Lees Dairy & Cafe where we’d get our burgers and have a cup of tea. The corner shop is a hairdresser.

And a close-up of that first quirky, colourful shop (second-hand shop)…

And some photos I took of the same group of shops…

On the opposite side of the road is this imposing building…

And here I’ll include another shot of Nigel’s – a photo he took of this same building from the left side, where there’s a rather incongruous bright blue building immediately behind it…
