Railway Heritage

Wedderburn Station

The original Wedderburn Station, built in 1900, has been recovered and restored to its original home (a curling club had moved it 300m to the west). This is the last remaining Vogel 5 station and ticket office in New Zealand, with a simple lean-to design.

Wedderburn was once busy with rail wagons leaving laden with rabbit carcasses.

Several kilometres west of the station concrete tablets mark the Trail's highest point and where it crosses the 45th parallel.
