Spring Bluff Railway Station

Spring Bluff, Toowoomba Area

Spring Bluff Railway Station is a heritage listed site located on the main railway line between Ipswich and Toowoomba. Its significance stems from over 150 years of railway history and the attraction of its landscaped gardens. In 1914 Queensland Railways launched a garden competition to encourage railway staff to beautify the stations and grow vegetables. The gardens are now beautifully maintained and have won awards in the Carnival of Flowers competition over many years.

The grounds are open for visitors all year round to enjoy a picnic or barbecue or perhaps a visit to the Spring Bluff Cafe for coffee and treats.

Spring Bluff Railway Station has been the venue for many weddings over the years and the quaint country-feel to the Station lends itself to being one of the most romantic outdoor small wedding venues in the Region. It's a beautiful spot for wedding photos too!

Whatever the reason for visiting Spring Bluff Railway Station - picnic, coffee at the cafe, family outing, wedding, or just relaxing in the peaceful surrounds - they'll guarantee you'll want to come back for the Spring Bluff experience.
