Jennings

 

JenningsJennings is one of the twin towns  of Jennings and Wallangarra which are divided by the railway station placed exactly on the border of New South Wales and Queensland.

Named after the first Catholic Premier of New South Wales - Sir Patrick Jennings, this village has strong links with the Federation story where Sir Henry Parkesdisembarked on the Queensland side of the Railway Station before travelling on to Tenterfield from the New South Wales side to deliver his famous Federation Speech in 1889.

The Railway Station has been beautifully restored and now operates as an interactive Heritage Museum and Function Centre. 

Jennings is only 5.5 km from the heart of Girrawwen National Park.
