Extent Heritage was commissioned to undertake a Movable Heritage Audit of the Section 170 Heritage and Conservation Register list for Mount Victoria Railway Station. Mount Victoria Railway Station Group is of State significance as a large complex of mid-late nineteenth and early twentieth century railway buildings that clearly illustrate the development of railway facilities in the Blue Mountains area.
Mount Victoria Railway Station Group is of State significance as a large complex of mid-late nineteenth and early twentieth century railway buildings that clearly illustrate the development of railway facilities in the Blue Mountains area. It is one of the most substantial railway station complex in the Blue Mountains, retaining evidence of former passenger, railway staff and depot uses. The station was developed from the 1860s onwards to meet the increased traffic from tourism to Mount Victoria itself and eventually to accommodate passengers travelling between Bathurst and Sydney. Today, the station precinct contains built and archaeological heritage relating to its early use, through to the duplication and expansion of the railway and onto the electrification of the line.
Extent provided a Movable Heritage Audit for the station precinct to:
Identify, document and assess the movable heritage items on the Section 170 Heritage and Conservation Register;
Categorise the moveable heritage items; and
Make recommendations for management of the movable heritage collection.
This report was undertaken as part of a larger package of reports, allowing Extent to efficiently create cohesive, effective documentation and conservation recommendations for the station.
