The Goulburn Roundhouse was saved from demolition by the Goulburn Locomotive Roundhouse Preservation Society.
The roundhouse is now run as Goulburn Rail Heritage Centre, a museum open to the public with large collection of rolling stock and various exhibits, as well as privately owned locomotives and carriages.
Following the completion of the first railway from Sydney to Parramatta Junction in 1855, proposals for the first railways to the rest of NSW included a line to the inland centre of Goulburn. A single line from Marulan to Goulburn opened on 27 May 1869.
Associated railway structures at Goulburn included the goods shed (1868), the carriage shed (1869), engine shed (1869), a coal stage, water pump, turntable, and the Station Master’s residence (1870)
The Roundhouse was constructed of brick and corrugated iron in 1918 with a 90-foot electrically operated turntable.
The Museum has a collection of railway locomotives, carriages, wagons and other railway equipment including:
