Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.
Jennings 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 Parkes disembarked 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 Girraween National Park.
