It is very easy to miss this tiny town but Cullen Bullen is a great place to stop and rest if you are doing a long drive.
In 2016 this little peaceful town had 297 people who mostly work the local mines and Mount Piper Power Station.
I stopped to have a closer look at the old railway station that is located on the main road from Sydney to Mudgee. If you like trains you will find the station interesting as the unused tracks are all still there.
A few interesting facts about the railway.
1-May-1889. Opened as Carsons Siding and Halt
30-Jul-1896. Renamed Cullen Bullen and Platform
14-Jun-1927. Moved site
Other interesting things see and to do.
If you like 4WD you will love the beautiful Wongan Valley and Gardens of Stone National Park, both of which are accessible by 4WD and lie to the east of the town.
