The Railway Hotel was built in 1939, at the end of the "Art Deco" era and represents a particularly Australian form of this type of architecture. In its early years it provided relatively stylish accommodation and its two large dining rooms supplied meals for many townsfolk and travellers, involved in the booming gold mining industry. There have been many changes over the years and many events including weddings and funerals.

In 2001 The Railway relinquished its hotel license although it retains a license to supply alcohol to guests. Previous owners undertook a number of renovations in the early part of this decade which saved the grand old building from destruction. Improvements to the fabric of the building are continuing under the current owners.

These days "The Railway" is a much quieter place, which provides a charming environment for people to relax after a long days travel or work. Our local psychic has cleansed the establishment of the less savoury of its "unpaying guests" and the ones that remain are benign spirits.
