HistoryEdit

DescriptionEdit

The heritage-listed complex includes a type 11 pre-cast concrete station building, a pre-cast concrete, skillion roofed signal box, a corrugated iron WC lamp room, and a goods shed. It also includes the timber platform face and footbridge. The landscape of the station and yard precinct also falls within the heritage listing. All heritage-listed buildings and structures at the station date from 1921.[1]

Heritage listingEdit

Bombala is a site of high significance as one of the most intact and well preserved country sites from late in the railways expansion period, c. 1920. The buildings and structures are all excellent examples of their type and the group presents as an important record of how country terminus stations operated.

The footbridge is unusual in such a location and a superb example of a non-standard solution to site access. The station building is one of the best pre-cast concrete structures to survive in the State.[1]
