Fun Facts & Things to Do
The Donnybrook Railway Station which houses the Visitor’s Centre where you started your adventure today was constructed in 1893.
It is listed by the State Heritage Office which notes: “Donnybrook Railway Station is composed of two separate timber weatherboard pavilions in the Inter-War Georgian Revival style with a gap of about 5 metres between them. The hipped Marseilles tiled roof extends across this area and also cantilevers out on brackets to form a roof over the platform and at each end of the building”
The original Station Master’s House alongside the station is a single-storey weatherboard building. This building has been kept and restored and is currently used as the Community Resource Centre.
The corrugated iron goods shed located on the western side of the railway line recently underwent a complete renovation and now houses the café Park Donnybrook.
The magnificent English Oak Tree located next the town’s railway station is one of the largest English Oak trees in Australia. It’s believed to have been planted in 1893.
The Donnybrook Station Markets are held on the lawn in front of the Donnybrook Railway Station every third Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM with a wide range of arts, crafts and produce.
