Dirranbandi Railway Park

Dirranbandi, Balonne Area

Dirranbandi marks the end of the south west rail line and was the destination of the very last mail train to operate in Australia. On a visit to Railway Park, you'll find the old waiting room, the original parcels office and the 1913 Station Master's residence, which is now the Rural Transaction Centre. Here you will have the opportunity to talk to a local and find out some further history on the town. While meandering through the park you will uncover a stone cotton bale in memory of the late Des Stevenson, the pioneer of the cotton industry in Dirranbandi and the famed Cubbie Station. A bronze statue in the centre of town celebrates the remarkable story of Aboriginal man Tom Dancey - the 1910 winner of Australia's most famous foot race, the Stawell Gift.
