The Sandon is the most remote beach village in the Clarence Valley. The north side of the river is reached by a 10km dirt road from Brooms Head but to access the south side (pictured) you need to drive along the beach from Minnie Waters for 10km.
The more accessible north side is totally located within the Yuraygir National Park. The 13 shacks were built between the 1930's to 1960's and came under Permissive Occupancy title. Since the National Park was incorporated in 1983 there has been an ongoing legal case as the National Parks seeks to resume and probably demolish them. I am unsure where this case stands at present but all the shacks are still standing, well looked after and used!
The very remote south side, it's correct name is the Sandon Village, contains around 35 houses and shacks that were converted to freehold title in the 1960's. These dwellings are very tightly held and if they do come on the market sell for incredible amounts of money.
To drive between Sandon Village and Sandon River would take a good couple of hours; to swim or go by boat just a few minutes.
