History[edit]

Bundaberg's first railway station, on the Mount Perry railway line, was built in 1881 as a transfer station to the Bundaberg docks for shipping coal from nearby mines.[1] It is now in use as a museum. The station has one side platform and a south facing bay platform. A yard exists opposite the station.

Bundaberg is served by long-distance Traveltrain services; the Spirit of Queensland, Spirit of the Outback and Rockhamption Tilt Train.[2][3][4]

It is also the terminal point for a Tilt Train service.[4] It was previously served by the Bundaberg Mail.[5]
