City Bound: A History of the Port Adelaide Railway Station

1st May to 15th July 2018

The National Railway Museum’s latest exhibition takes a look at more than one hundred and fifty years of the Port Adelaide (later Port Dock) Railway Station, since its completion in 1856. The exhibition traces the development of the historic site on the corner of St Vincent Street and Lipson Street, as the station terminal evolved until its eventual demise in the 1980s.

The National Railway Museum would love to hear your stories of life connected to the railway stations of Port Adelaide. Please email or contact us via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Don’t forget to tag your photos and stories with #CityboundPARS or #MyPARSstory.

We hope you enjoy the exhibition.
