The Ormondville Rail Preservation Group Inc was established in 1986 to save the

Ormondville Station Precinct after its closure.

The station, built in 1880, has a Category Two listing with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. It won the Rail Heritage Award in 1997 and the National Federation of Rail Societies Inc.’s  Paul Heighton Trophy “For Excellence” in 2000. Restored to a 1950s theme, it is furnished with railway artifacts and fronted with a graceful wrought iron verandah.

Ormondville station is also available for selfcatering homestay accommodation, offering a complete railway nostalgia experience in a rural setting.


Check out the exquisite historic Anglican Church of Epiphany (built 1891).
