All aboard for this wonderful event! Transport for NSW and Southern Tablelands Arts are hosting a family open day to explore the newly restored Gunning Train Station, which has been transformed so that it can now host exhibitions, heritage displays, programs, events, workshops, community meetings and gatherings.

The open day is the first opportunity for the public to explore the major restoration as it nears completion.
