My husband had heard of this museum and seeing we were near it wanted to stop. The people there were very helpful and took the time to look up things and explain others. There are so many things to look at that it really requires a bit of time to do it justice. Even if you're not into trains like... More

If you're a railway buff, this is a definite must see. If you're not (and I'm not) but you have any sort of interest in history, it is still a very interesting stop and definitely worth a visit. The monument park and memorial wall include some great sculptures and have been very tastefully put together. Open 24/7 The old (still... More

We were driving through town and noticed the sign. Never even knew this place existed. The exhibits are fascination and the sculptures and memorial outside are just so uniquely done. The volunteers on hand really know their stuff, and we got to speak with one of the guys that put it together at the start. What a story of how... More

I love this place! So much history and a great old building. The modern sculptures outside are a wonderful contrast. The volunteers are just adorable! Ready for a good old chat, they are full of knowledge and all seem to have some attachment to the railway. They are in the process of refurbishing the first floor and this should be... More

I unfortunately passed by the station when it was closed for the day. I would have loved to see more than the exterior. I did get a lot of pictures while I was there though. I have been to Tamworth three times and this time I was DETERMINED that I was going to get pictures of the station - great... More

Apart from the amazing effort put into this Museum collection, the artistic sculptors are quite good interpretations of the various areas within the history of the Railway Workers. The Memorial is also dedicated to the workers through paving bricks on the footpath into the Memorial. Most importantly, though, the Volunteers we met on the day could not have been more... More

This little museum at Werris Creek has lots to interest rail enthusiasts. If however you are really only interested in rolling stock it may not be for you. This museum focusses on equipment and memorabilia. We particularly liked the 3801 live steam model which took six years to build as well as the electric staff exchange equipment. The catering stories... More

A visit to my old place of work was very rewarding as it has been turned into the Australian Railway Monument and Rail Journeys Museum. There is an extensive display of railwaybilia and the Monument is very well set out. Staff were helpful and admission is only by donation.
