Willandra is an heritage-listed former service station and homestead and now community facility located at 782 Victoria Road, Ryde in the City of Ryde local government area of New South Wales, Australia. Its design is attributed to William Weaver[1]:47 and built from 1841 to 1844 by James Devlin. It is also known as the Ryde House. The property is owned by the City of Ryde Council. It was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999.

The house is completed in the Colonial Georgian architectural style. During the 1970s the house was in danger of being demolished but it was purchased by the City of Ryde Council with the assistance of the Australian Government and has been restored. It is now used by local community groups.
