‘The Station’ Offers Once-in-a-lifetime Opportunity


The NSW Government is inviting expressions of interest for the iconic Newcastle former city railway station, commonly referred to as the ‘The Station’.

The Station is in need of an experienced operator ready to manage the site long-term, maintaining the integrity of the buildings without it falling into disrepair.

The beloved heritage site has long been enjoyed by the Newcastle community, as well as travellers far and wide as they arrived via the railways on their regional travels to Newcastle from 1885 to 2014.

The building symbolises the expansion of rail into regional NSW and is a major example of one type of Victorian Station architecture.

The opportunity to see the station transformed again into a site that travellers and tourists alike will visit is one that the NSW Government applauds.

Colliers International is marketing the long-term lease and EOIs will be accepted until 2 May 2024.
