Description

The first building in the old Onslow townsite was a goods shed, warehouse and store. In 1904, this building burnt down and a replacement structure was built and connected to the sea jetty by tramway. The new shed included a Bond Store, and a lookout tower was added in 1910. In 1925 the building was dismantled and transported by camel train to the new townsite.

When reconstructed at Beadon Point the Goods Shed was extended, with a further extension in 1953, and refurbished after cyclone damage in the 1960s. Today, the goods loading platform houses a display of railway rolling stock including the 1928 petrol locomotive, which was part of the Onslow tramway system. More rolling stock is located in the railyard alongside the Goods Shed and inside you will find fascinating displays on Onslow’s early years and important events in the town such as the many cyclones that have hit this stretch of coast, and the bomb that fell on Onslow during WWII.
