Wallangarra Historic Railway Station

Stand with one foot in Queensland and one foot in New South Wales when you stand on that station platform at the historic Wallangarra Railway Station. The railway station at Wallangarra was built in 1888 to service travellers who had to change trains from the standard gauge of New South Wales to Queensland’s narrow gauge. The two trains met here. Note the differing architecture of the platform façades too. One side of the platform reflects the New South Wales standard design for railways of that era, with a skillion roof, while the other is Queensland’s design with its bullnose verandah roof. There is a small and fascinating (and free) museum within the station buildings, and a cafe is situated in the old railway dining rooms. The Wallangarra Railway Museum is a free-entry museum situated in the Station masters office, and it is housing many press cuttings, mini models, memorabilia and a simulator booth. The original Railway Refreshment Rooms are now a cafe, and the room size shows how many people would have been making their transfers between trains. It's possible to dine on the station platform here and overlook the countryside towards Girraween National Park.
