Grandchester Railway Station - Grandchester
Discover the exciting history along a country road when you visit Queensland’s first railway station - Grandchester Railway Station.
Established in 1865, Grandchester Railway Station was originally known as Bigge’s Camp. The name was allegedly changed to avoid the title being slurred into ‘Big Scamp’.
The rural township of Grandchester is located 76 kilometres south-west of central Brisbane. Only an hour’s drive from the city gives locals and tourists a fantastic opportunity to pack the family into the car and head off for an educational adventure — to discover a part of Australia that is often overlooked.
Today the Railway Station is a much quieter place. The historic railway building along with the once-essential equipment and machinery on display will fascinate young and old alike. Guided tours of the station allow visitors to connect with a place that ranks high as one of the state’s most significant railway heritage places.
Entry is free; however donations are always welcome to assist in maintaining and conserving this piece of Queensland history.
