Honeysuckle Point Railway Workshops, 1885-

From Engineering Heritage New South Wales


The Honeysuckle Point Railway Workshops were established in 1856 to service the independent NSW Great Northern Railway, originating from Newcastle.

The buildings remaining are rare examples of the design principles used for late 19th century industrial buildings and the 16 ton rope-driven crane, built by Craven Brothers of Manchester (restored in 1996) represents the culmination of 19th century materials handling technology.
