Rotarian Brian Townsend
Central Mortuary Station

Virtual Tour of Mortuary Station,

Brian will give you a virtual tour of Mortuary Station.

Designed for one very creepy purpose — to carry Sydney’s dead to their final resting place,

Mortuary Station is the only remaining example of a purpose-built Victorian funerary railway station in Australia, and possibly the world. Located just outside Central Station, it is one of the most ornate sandstone structures in Sydney – and certainly one of the most unusual railway buildings in NSW.

Virtual guests will take a journey back in time to learn about this elaborately carved stone railway station and have the opportunity to appreciate the landscaping and the architectural and cultural aspects of the building. 

The tour is on their website if you need more.
