Come and visit the beautifully restored Robertson Heritage Railway Station in the centre of the pretty village of Robertson on the eastern edge of the Southern Highlands. The Station has a unique set of buildings completed in 1932 when the Illawarra Mountain Railway was built. Its heritage value has been recognized by the National Trust of Australia.
The station has a museum, gallery, picnic pavilions, Perway/Gang Shed, reconciliation carved poles, and Flugelman sculpture in landscaped gardens.
The station is the destination of the Cockatoo Run (part of 3801 Ltd.) which offers one of the most scenic train trips in the country. The vistas from the vintage carriages as passengers ascend the 2000 foot high escarpment from Wollongong, are simply breathtaking. Lake Illawarra and the sparklingly blue ocean are laid out for all to see.
Robertson Heritage Railway Station Incorporated (ABN 49 205 638 195) aims “to maintain, manage, enhance and conserve the Robertson Heritage Railway Station and precinct“.
New members are welcome.
