Housed in the Werris Creek railway station and run by volunteers, this provides an amazing insight into the development of railways in this country and particularly in the north-west of the state. Run by volunteers, admission is free but they have plans to extend the museum and welcome donations. I did not know that Werris Creek was the third biggest... More

We took a little drive from Tamworth and called in to this museum along the way. One of the volunteers was on hand to explain some of the items on display, which made it all the more interesting as we wouldn't have known what half the things were for or what they did. Very interesting, especially their version of a... More

Excellent insight to the building of the railway under not so easy conditions. Well run by a group of lovely people.

Well worth a visit, in fact it's worth detouring into Werris Creek to view this museum. Would be enjoyed by gunzels and non-gunzels.

We called in to the museum with mum-in-law in May to see how it was looking & to look up the details showing my late father-in-law who worked for 45 years on the railway as a train driver. They had lived in Werris Creek for over 50 years before moving to Junee some years ago to be closer to family.... More

All things Railway, and you get the feel for the pioneering aspect of it when Rail was The transport over distance for remote NSW. If you want to see what it took to get Australia mobile, this is a must see. Mind you, in Werris Creek.....there is not much else.

This is incorrectly listed as a Tamworth attraction - Werris Creek is about 40km south west of Tamworth. The town of Werris Creek has a strong railway heritage - immediately evident when you arrive in town, as all of the street name signs are shaped like railway semaphore signals! The museum is in a building on the railway platform and... More

This three year old railway museum is located between Werris Creek railway station's two platforms, one of which is for the Tamworth and Armidale XPlorer service and the other for the Narrabri and Moree line. The museum is well set out. Although Werris Creek is no longer quite as bustling as it once was (the railways are now a smaller... More
