About

The Leongatha Railway Site Transformation project seeks to improve the Leongatha railway yard and station area for the benefit of the community now that the tourist railway has closed. While the railway corridor to Leongatha will remain open for future rail services, the State Government currently has no plans for their return. Given this, Council has the opportunity to take over the lease of the railway land and to improve the Leongatha railway site and its surrounds. The project involves Council working closely with VicTrack who are the land managers on behalf of the Crown.

Car Boot Sale Bring your car along to the park on Roughead Street behind the palm trees (Apex Park) at the Leongatha railway site with any items you want to sell from 11am. Please speak to staff on the day for more information from 10am.
