Information

Thomson Station is the destination station for departures from Walhalla on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway narrow gauge line in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia The station is located where the line crossed the Thomson River. The station was situated on the section of line closed in 1944.

The station reopened in 1995, and is now the headquarters of the Walhalla Goldfields Railway. The platform and wooden station building had been reconstructed at Thomson for use by WGR tourist trains as the current terminus.

The station was built on the bank of the river, only about 100 metres from the now famous Thomson River railway bridge that runs next to the road bridge to Walhalla.

There are plans to extend the line to Erica, substantially increasing the total length of the line.
