Overview

We are the Loopline Railway Museum and Information Centre. We have historic mining and rail displays of various items from the early days in the Goldfields. Our displays have been kindly donated by local community members or are on loan from the Eastern Goldfields Historical Society. Come down and visit us at our Boulder City Station, which once was part of one of the busiest railway networks in Australia, explore through our Museum and enjoy our collection. Sit back and enjoy a relaxing massage in our massage chair while you watch our videos playing in our media room. Take photos with the Darlek on display which is on loan to us by a local artist. Visit our old miners huts that are currently surrounded by beautiful flowers. Finish your Loopline experience with some souvenirs from our gift shop, and why not make it memorable with some rail art. Our rail art is made by our volunteers using Loopline dog spikes that are over 100 years old and rail clips.

This was an interesting visit which highlighted the brief history of the 'Railway' in this area. It was a shame though, that due to the expansion of the 'Super Pit' they were unable to offer anything associated with a ride on the railway.

Visited on a very quiet Saturday afternoon. Appears to be run by enthusiasts. The displays in the old offices are wonderful and give a glimpse of life back 'in the day'

The museum, which is situated in the historic railway station, is very interesting. I wish the trains were operating on the day I visited.
