Information

Located 258 klm from Brisbane via Cunningham's Gap is Queensland's southern most township.
There is nothing particularly impressive about Wallangarra on the New South Wales-Queensland border. If the two states had behaved like reasonable governments then the town would probably never have come into existence. However the decisions by the two governments to build railways of different gauges (1067 mm for Queensland and 1435 mm for New South Wales) ensured that this tiny settlement became a major railway junction. From the completion of the railway in 1887 until common sense prevailed in 1930 every passenger travelling either north or south had to alight at Wallangarra and board another train. Not surprisingly the town's most distinctive feature, and its only real attraction, is the rather grand Victorian railway station. Such is the stupidity of politicians.
