Located on the Busselton Foreshore and adjacent to the Busselton Jetty, Railway House, is home to the Busselton Visitor Centre, the 150 year old and beautifully restored Ballaarat Steam Engine, as well as an interpretive space, sharing stories about the engine and artifacts connecting Busselton to its timber industry past time. Learn about the types of timbers that were renowned in the South

Nearby is the northern terminus of the Wadandi Track, stretching from Busselton via Cowaramup and Margaret River to Augusta (sections still to be completed).

Built in 1894, the original Busselton Railway Station was located in Stanley Street, Busselton, it served the community for over 90 years before being decommissioned. In 1987 the station was relocated to the public open space at the town’s entrance. It was later moved to the Busselton Foreshore in 2016 and skillfully incorporated into what is now known as today’s “Railway House”. Here you will enjoy stories of Busselton past and present.

Railway House is also available for hire as a private function space and often houses, special exhibitions in collaboration with the Artgeo Cultural Complex.
