(25 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Wallangarra railway station is located on the New South Wales/Queensland state border in the town of Wallangarra.HistoryWallangarra station opened on 4 February 1887, when the Queensland Railway's Southern line was extended from Stanthorpe.On 16 January 1888, the New South Wales Government Railways' Main Northern line was extended from Tenterfield. Even though it shared a common station, the New South Wales station was initially named Jennings after the town on its side of the border. It adopted the Wallangarra name shortly after. The state border passes through the station.Because of the break-of-gauge, the station was built with one island platform with one building, with the western occupied by the narrow gauge line from Queensland and the eastern side by the standard gauge line from New South Wales. Each side of the building sported the awnings and signage of its occupants. Until the completion of the North Coast line in 1930, it was the main route between Sydney and Brisbane.In 1988, the New South Wales line from Tenterfield closed. The last train to operate north of Tenterfield was an Australian Railway Historical Society charter on 15 January 1988 hauled by diesel locomotive 4487. However, in the same year, Queensland Rail installed a gantry crane formerly used at Clapham Yard in Brisbane.

  • Really affordable place to have a filling breakfast. Food & coffee were great. Cafe is located in the railway station. Nice place to escape the cold outdoors :)
  • A very pleasant place to stop and have lunch at the cafe and to explore the old railway station. Highly Recommended.
  • Enjoyed a tasty white wine & mushoom pasta with garlic bread for lunch. Very reasonably priced.
  • Amanda and her girls do a great job. Foid & coffee is awesome
  • The 'build a meal' breakfast is good value.
