Wandal, a residential suburb of Rockhampton, is two km north-west of the city centre. It was named after the residence of Alex Jardine (explorer and pastoralist), and the sale of the 120-lot Wandal Estate in 1912 coincided with the development of the suburb. A tram service (1909) greatly assisted residential growth.
