Beautiful sandstone facade on this well maintained heritage building, and considered to be one of State Architect James Barnet’s best small-scale works. It was one of the two major stations in Sydney city from the 1880s until the 1930s. The fa├žade features an interesting Palladian design reminiscent of a gateway with heavily articulated piers, quoins and voussoirs.
