Goods Shed Markets @ Goods Shed
Oct 22 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

The “shed” was once the bustling heart of the town, where the steam trains of old pulled right in to unload their cargo. One of the features of the building are the massive jarrah beams of a size that are rarely seen today.

Browse around the many stalls of cakes, books, plants, crafts, fruit, cakes, sheep manure, etc.

View the railway interpretive display in the ticket office or enjoy morning tea in the “Coach Café”, a restored dining car.
