Top Ten in the Best Of Anything & Everything groups "Railway Stations & Or Doors challenge on 29.04.2013

The Tenterfield Station opened in 1886 and was the last station built on the Sydney to Brisbane railway line. For 103 years, Tenterfield Station made history – playing host to the full range of trains from yesteryear to the XPT. Today, many of the original operational facilities are still in working condition, allowing the station to transform itself into a railway museum with a collection of well-preserved railway artefacts. Guided tours will take you through exhibitions in all rooms of the building, and passionate volunteers can talk you through the many exciting eras of railway, making you feel part of the operation.

The NSW Government endorsed a Sustainable Rail Heritage
Asset Management Strategy in 2006 to ensure the State’s
rail heritage assets are conserved for current and future
generations to appreciate and enjoy.
The Strategy will ensure the ongoing care of the State’s
most unique items of rail heritage by volunteer based
organisations that are committed to sharing our rail story
with the general public.

Tenterfield sits astride the Great Dividing Range at the
northern end of the New England Highway – 18 kilometres
south of the Queensland border.

Not only is the Station a superb example of Victorian Gothic
architecture that was designed by the father of the NSW
railways, John Whitton, but until it closed in 1989, it was one of
the State’s longest serving regional stations.

Ironically, the Station’s services came to an end 100 years
after the then Premier of New South Wales, Sir Henry Parkes
made his famous Federation Speech in Tenterfield.
