This beautiful old building was erected by Gambling and Son of Adelaide and opened in 1909. It replaced an old timber and iron station, which was erected in 1878. The present building is one of several built throughout the state of the same design, including the Wallaroo Railway Station, which has been altered in recent years.

The station is set in spacious grounds and is now the home of the Moonta Tourist Office. Open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, visitors have access to information on attractions, accommodation, community services and special events. Souvenirs are also available. An extensive display of old photographs, depicting life in Moonta in the 1800s is free of charge and gives an insight into Moonta's rich history. Ample car, coach and caravan parking available and public toilets (including disabled) are on site.

Bookings and enquiries taken for group tours to: Museum, train, cottage and sweet shop.
