The Railway Goods Shed Project

Concluding in 2019 this project saw the restoration and refurbishment of the 130-year-old heritage-listed Toowoomba Railway Goods Shed. The careful renewal of the unique timber structure and installation of modern service provisions has given this facility a new lease of life. The facility now has the ability to host any range of events and the community is encouraged to consider the hire of it for their next community function.

The Railway Goods Shed was the first step in the implementation of the Railway Parklands Master Plan. This exciting programs of work will be delivered over multiple years and ultimately provide community infrastructure for our growing community.

The project was partially funded by the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program.
