Jennings/Wallangarra

Jennings is one of the twin towns of Jennings and Wallangarra which are divided by the railway station placed exactly on the border of NSW and QLD.

Named after the first Catholic Premier of NSW - Sir Patrick Jennings, this village has strong links with the Federation story where Sir Henry Parkes disembarked on the QLD side of the Railway Station before travelling on to Tenterfield from the NSW 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 5.5km from the heart of Giraween National Park.
