Background

This project will see the removal and relocation of the old portable Bullarto Station House and construction of a new replica of the original Head House. Accessible amenities, in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act, will be added to the building and the precinct will be enhanced with gardens and fencing at the south-eastern end of the platform.

This forms a part of the broader aspirations for the Daylesford Spa Country Railway (DSCR) that aims to expand their unique tourism service. DSCR currently operates a 9km rail excursion using restored vintage carriages and engines through the picturesque Wombat State Forest on weekends between Daylesford and Bullarto. With a reconstructed Head House, the Bullarto Station will have a more appropriate and welcoming venue to receive passengers, host small events and cater for visitors.

Construction Update

Following the installation of screw pile foundations and in-ground services, the sub-floor framing on the Bullarto Station building is taking shape. Next up is wall and roof framing.
