Granville Railway MemorialPrint Page
A monument commemorates the opening of the second railway line in Australia and the first in Sydney.
In 1849, the Sydney Railway Company started building the first railway track in New South Wales between Sydney and Parramatta - a distance of 22 kilometres.
The project ran into financial difficulty and was taken over by the New South Wales colonial government. The line opened on 26 September 1855. The station opened in 1860 as Parramatta Junction, and is close to the original terminus of the first railway line in New South Wales which was completed in 1855.
