Sandalwood Van and Leisure Park is a pet friendly travellers park set on 21 acres of pasture and bushland 12 kilometres south of Ballina on the Pacific Highway.
They are minutes to a pet friendly beach, and a one kilometre stroll to the river town of Wardell. There are large, spacious, level powered sites, cabins, a swimming pool and well presented amenities. Just a short drive to Patches Beach and plenty of fishing spots. A lovely quiet park.
In the 1850s, Wardell was a cedar getter settlement known as 'Blackwall' where two saw mills operated and the river trade flourished. As the availability of cedar wood diminished, so the opportunity arose for the planting of sugar cane and this now remains the main industry of Wardell.
Wardell is a great fishing spot and the 'Wardell Walkabout' is a tour of the historic buildings of a bygone era. A brochure is available at the Ballina Visitor Centre....
