Tenterfield Railway Museum

The Station opened in 1886 and is a rare survival of something that was once common throughout NSW. It is an almost intact nineteenth century railway precinct.  When the line was completed to the border in 1888, Sydney and Brisbane were linked by rail for the first time.  Services declined gradually from the 1970s and finished completely in October, 1989.

Tenterfield Railway Station Preservation Society now operates the entire precinct as a Railway Museum.


Please note: The museum will be closed for the day on Wednesday 9th December, and then from Thursday 24th December, reopening Monday 4th January 2021.
