Ben Bullen

If Cullen Bullen is small then Ben Bullen is much much smaller.  Not much more than a turn in the road that crosses the railway line and a disused railway station. It is also on the edge of the Gardens of Stone National Park.

Rail played an important role in opening up this area in the late 1800s. Each of the little towns we pass along the way is on the line.  Most the stations are closed but the line itself is still used for goods trains. CountryLink buses serve the passenger traffic with one service each way each day.

By the way, Ben Bullen is said to mean high quiet place in the local aboriginal language.


  1. I think this is the wee station that I have a shot of with the rays of the setting sun. It is sitting on my sofa waiting to be framed and hung. Only taken nigh on two years ...

    Nice area made even nicer by the names of the hamlets ...

  2. Very nice perspective of the railway and old station.

  3. I agree - the railway image is fantastic.

    You've visited so many interesting places :)

  4. Great perspective of the dying station. Its sad.

  5. Nice perspective for the old station shot.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
