The Old Beenleigh Railway Station

By Dr Graeme Nicholson

The old Beenleigh Railway Station was opened in 1885.

It served as the terminus of the line until the South Coastline opened to Southport on 25 January 1889. The station ceased operations in March 1987 being replaced by a temporary station in Spanns Road until the new station was opened on 12 March 1988 in time for EXPO 88.

The old station was moved to The Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum in 1987 where it was slightly modified and is now The Tin Cup Café.

The Café has been enhanced by the addition of a large verandah added to the original platform roof.

The setting looks out upon the manicured grounds that include an ornamental lake and a ‘bush tucker’ garden. This is the ideal setting to catch up with friends over Devonshire tea or enjoy a meal with the family.

The menu includes favourites such as toasted sandwiches, chicken schnitzels and chips, and lasagne and salad; while daily lunch specials include the likes of rissoles and damper or lamb shanks in red wine sauce.

There is no entry fee to the Village if you are just visiting the cafe.

However, it is well worth the small entry fee to step back in time and take a tour of this fascinating and beautifully preserved time capsule of local Australian heritage situated at 205 Main Street Beenleigh.
