Description

A railway station which is split into two, two schools, two police stations, two pubs - and a population of a few hundred. So, why has Wallangarra and its neighbouring township of Jennings received so much attention by governments? Simply put: they are border towns.

Half of the railway station is owned by Queensland and the southern end is owned by New South Wales. It's a good example of how governments in the past went their own ways - notice the two different railway gauges.

The railway station looks quite new, however, because with the Celebration of Federation there was a general spruce-up. The town has an excellent information centre, picnic facilities with barbecues and toilets. You'll know you're in railway town once you spot the big train welcome sign. This is one of those rare towns where you can celebrate New Year's Eve twice - New South Wales operates on Daylight Savings time.
