The Railway Station at Cunnamulla opened on 10 October 1898. Passenger services were withdrawn in 1994, replaced by coach services from Charleville. The station buildings have significant heritage and aesthetic value and are a feature of the town's heritage trail.
As you can expect, the building and grounds have required significant work to bring this community landmark back to its former glory.
An exciting future
The Paroo Progress Association Inc. has leased the station buildings from Queensland Rail and is developing an exciting evening attraction to encourage visitors to stay overnight in town. This will be an audio/visual and light experience, both educational and entertaining, presenting local railway, town and pastoral stories.
The Cunnamulla, All Aboard project will grow the local tourism economy by providing a new 'bookable' product and support new business along with job creation in the region.

We need to raise $60000 to put towards building a theater that will seat 40 people and to develop the storylines using different methodologies that will make the educational and entertaining 40 minute sound and light show experience.
