Young Railway Station

Trains arrived in Young 25 years after the gold rush began in 1860. Surveyors set the tracks on the longest level ground in the town; the public school, Temperance & Masonic Halls and Congregational Church ‘in the road’ were demolished.

The station is a perfect example of the High Victorian era, when the state was ‘rolling in cash’ from the mining boom: Italianate-Gothic of brick with (under the paint) sandstone dressings, high roofs and ornate cast-iron verandahs.

Daily, seven trains each way covered 30km to meet the Sydney-Melbourne lineat Harden; on Saturdays weddings were in the monmring and bridal couples set of on their honeymoon on the 1230pm train, and the steam locomotive tooted “Cock-a -doodle-do” all the way up the hill. In 2008 the building was heritage listed after restoration and became Young’s Visitor Information Centre

In recent years there have been moves to re open the Harden to Blayney line (via Young & Cowra) by private enterprise.

Today you can browse cherry themed souvenirs and a range of local products such as jam, olive oil, honey, local Hilltops Region wines and more are available to purchase.

A small art gallery for local artists is also housed within the building. Entry is free of charge and exhibitions change regularly.

Local information and advice can also be obtained from the Young Visitor Information Centre
