The beautifully restored Bealiba Railway Station is a must-see nestled away in the quiet town of Bealiba.

This railway station has been extremely well maintained and is an attractive treasure of the town. There are interesting informational displays in a room at the end of the railway station. Be sure to sign the visitors book after you take a look around.

The following text has been published on www.stationspast.net:

Bealiba received it's railway, and civilized land transport, when the line was extended to St Arnaud, from Dunolly, in late 1878. A wooden station of a standard design was erected here, not only were offices included in the building, but also a residence for the station master. Similar,  and now demolished examples, were in the region at Cope Cope, and Charlton. Unattended already in the mid 1980s,  many rumours abounded that Bealiba was also going to suffer the same treatment.

Thankfully the Bealiba Railway Station did not suffer demolition and has become a proud feature of Bealiba.

Bealiba, despite its small size, has several fantastic attractions including the Orme Snowden Reserve (an excellent fenced playground and barbecue area) and the Bealiba Reservoir (where wood fire barbecue facilities and free camping are available).
