Statement of significance:

Its location at the end of Pym Street closes the vista of the main street and gives it a prominence in the townscape of considerable significance. It is an important civic building in an historic town setting exhibiting fine proportion and detailing. Millthorpe station is one of four examples of this station type, the others being St Peters 1883, Riverstone 1887 and Spring Hill 1884 (demolished). It is the only intact surviving country example and is of high significance.
