Statement of significance:

Bundanoon station and yard group is an excellent example of an early 20th century station complex with remnants of the early period of construction including the unusual and rare small goods shed. The original buildings for a small country location were expanded to take advantage of the holiday market in the early years of the century. The length of platforms indicate the relative importance of the station and the need for longer distance trains to stop here. The location of the site at a major intersection in the village of Bundanoon makes it an important visual element in the historic townscape that contributes significantly to the visual importance of the town. All of the listed elements contribute to the group and give a clear indication of the operation and style of a c.1913 station group.
