Gingin Railway Station

Gingin Railway Station

The Gingin Railway Station was built in 1891 by the Midland Railway to support the town and provide a link between Gingin and Midland.

Not only did it carry passengers and transported livestock and produce but in return brought the necessities and mail to the rural community of the Gingin Shire. The station also included barracks for the station master.

In the early 1900’s the steam trains ran through and stopped at Gingin on the route between Perth and Moora.

The station had refreshment rooms, with an extension to the kitchen built in 1930.

The station was in use until the train service ceased in 1976. The refreshment rooms were demolished then too.

Restoration works took place from 2011, with majority of the work being carried out by the Lions Club of Gingin/Chittering.

At this point in time, the Gingin Railway Station remains closed for works and repair.
