The Australian Rail Monument

is within the grounds of the Werris Creek Railway Station and is a memorial to those railway workers in Australia who died whilst at work on the railways.

The memorial features six sculptures of different trades, designed and made by Dominic Sutton of Sydney.

The Rail Journeys Museum

is housed in the Werris Creek Station Building, well-known in past years by travellers on the north and north western rail lines, as the Refreshment Room.

The museum is staffed by many volunteers and tells the stories of railway workers in days long gone.

The upstairs of the museum, though still a work in progress, is hoped to be open to the public in the near future and contains a magnificent model railway layout featuring Werris Creek.

The town of Werris Creek is the first and last town to be built in NSW for the railway and is strategically placed for the junctions required in the busy days of the railway.
