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 ...

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
