Booked our train trip from Australia and called in the day before to confirm everything. A big thank you to Jia, she was extremely helpful and a really happy and friendly young lady. A real pleasure to deal with.

A beautiful building built in the early 1900s and kept in excellent condition. several passenger and sight seeing trains leave and arrive at the station each day. We had the opportunity to travel round trip up the Tairei Gorge this day.

A lovingly restored and maintained railway station built in Flemish Renaissance style. It is in use today but even if you are not travelling by rail it is worth popping in The floor tiles and the stained glass windows upstairs were the highlights for us...More
