Statement of significance:

Black Mountain station group is an excellent intact station from the 1880's with a very good timber residence of unusual design (no longer owned by State Rail). The quality of the buildings marks the importance of the area in the pastoral development of the State and are an important and integral part of the townscape. This site illustrates the confidence in railway construction during the 1880's boom even in remote locations of the State.
