Statement of significance:

The Tallong station and dam group is one of the very few surviving sites with a dam and associated facilities that are visible from the line and a station location. The dam itself and pump house are significant elements in the industrial heritage of the railways. The station group is a significant early group of timber buildings from the 1870's through to early this century. All are rare surviving examples.
