Statement of significance:

Glen Innes station is an excellent country Victorian railway station, well designed, detailed and proportioned. It is important in the development of the railways and marks the importance of Glen Innes in the railway system. The station building is a landmark building in the town terminating the vista of Wentworth St. As a group it is significant and retains good elements from the early period of construction including the two residences. It is a fine example of a first class station building which is an enlargement of the standard roadside structure with the pavilions at each end and the central entry with collonaded verandah.
