Millthorpe station, back to the future!

30 years after the station closure, the first paying passengers got off a train at Millthorpe station, and almost a third of the town was there to greet them!

The heritage station re-opened mid-March with two daily train services that make it easier to travel between regional communities.

For years, the 'Millthorpe on Track' group campaigned to revamp the station and managed to raise $1.1 million to save it from demolition!

The Transport Access Program team worked closely with a determined and excited local community to deliver modern improvements that perfectly blend into the heritage building style.
