Finley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Finley Railway Museum


Finley was the first town selected, in the 1800s, for a Pioneer Railway. The rail was extended to Finley in 1898, at a time when NSW was experiencing financial difficulty. The railways saved money by adopting the 'Pioneer Rail Standards' for this,and a few other stations that were connected at this time. The Pioneer system followed the American style to link into regional areas to boost trade and travel, but at low cost due to the harsh economic conditions of the time.

Incredibly well preserved, Finley Station is one of the few Pioneer stations still standing, and is also host to the Finley Pioneer Railway Museum containing artefacts and real life railway stories.

Take a guided tour with a volunteer and learn about the history of the Finley Pioneer Railway Station or simply have a look around at the on site railway memorabilia dating back to the 1890s.

Tocumwal Historic Aerodrome Museum


The Tocumwal Historic Aerodrome Museum documents the history of and the importance of Mcintyre Airfield in Tocumwal, and also post war operations when over 700 aircraft were scrapped for aluminium. Later the airfield became a famed gliding destination.

Tocumwal is famous for many things - stunning beaches, the redgum forests on the outskirts, a fantastic golf course, the giant cod, glider and B24 replicas on poles, but Tocumwal is also famous for its role during WW2. The town was used as a major base by the US during the war effort, but then after the war ended, the area around the airfield became a massive aircraft graveyard and many hundreds of planes were chopped up, stripped and melted down.

You will find a wealth of information in the museum - stories, maps, photos, news articles and scale models.

Presentation can be arranged on request.
