Heritage listing

Bombala is a site of high significance as one of the most intact and well preserved country sites from late in the railways expansion period, c. 1920. The buildings and structures are all excellent examples of their type and the group presents as an important record of how country terminus stations operated.

The footbridge is unusual in such a location and a superb example of a non-standard solution to site access. The station building is one of the best pre-cast concrete structures to survive in the State.
