Walkaway Station Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Walkaway Station Museum is an impressive museum which will be of great interest to any rail enthusiast or historian. Stroll through the beautiful old railway station building to visualise how the station would have operated in the late 1800s. See where the station master lived and worked and learn about the history of this small community. Displays are always being upgraded and refurbished.

There are documents and memorabilia relating to the history of the Midland Railway Company. The museum has records of local burials, family histories and photographs and other social history from the Walkaway area and surroundings. In the old Goods Shed there is an old steam locomotive called B6, the only one of its type left in the world. The museum hopes to encourage community members with relevant skills to help restore B6. The new shed has been completed and currently houses the steam locomotive ‘O’ 218 and the Managers Carriage KA17. These items are on loan from Rail Heritage WA.

The town of Walkaway is a short drive inland from Geraldton and four hours drive north of Perth.
