Jennings

Jennings Town

Named after the first Catholic Premier of NSW, Sir Patrick Jennings, the small village of Jennings is home to around 200 people and is situated right on the New South Wales/Queensland border.

The ‘twin towns’ of Jennings in NSW and Wallangarra in QLD are separated by an impressive Victorian-era railway station built exactly on the state border, which became a busy rail interchange in the late 1800s. Each state used a different rail gauge, which meant that passengers had to disembark at the station and change trains in order to travel through the neighbouring state.

The line is no longer operational, and the railway station now acts as an interactive heritage museum, café and function centre.

Jennings is only 5.5 km from the stunning Mount Norman walk, and offers easy access to Girraween National Park, a naturalist’s paradise, offering visitors a vast array of rock formations to discover, walking and mountain bike tracks to explore, calming waterholes and creeks to relax beside, and an abundance of wildlife to meet. Challenge yourself to conquer the highest peak in the Park, Mount Norman, accessible from Wallangarra. Mount Norman Road also offers exciting 4WD opportunities for thrill seekers and adventure chasers.

A visit to Jennings is not complete without a meal and catch up with the locals at the Jennings Hotel, which also offers motel rooms and free camping.
