Rail station is a ticket to rich past
Dumbleyung’s pioneering history has been honoured with the old railway building being developed into a self-guided historical display.
The display is designed to showcase the history of Dumbleyung through film, books and exhibits, with people able to view it in their own time by calling a listed phone number to gain entry.
Dumbleyung Townscape and Tourism Committee chairwoman councillor Amy Knight said it was good to see the rich history featured in an interesting and well-presented way.
“It’s also great to be able to activate a historic building in the process,” she said.
“We have a lot of people stop in Dumbleyung on their way through to places, so having this display in the main street is a good way to get people to hang around for a bit longer.”
The project is set to be extended with a new historic walk through the area, with signs highlighting the town’s significant buildings and sites.
