Spring Bluff Railway Station forms part of the Ipswich to Toowoomba rail line.

Construction of the line began in 1864 and the premier train came through Toowoomba in 1867.

Originally known as Highfields Train Station, it was renamed Spring Bluff Railway Station in the later part of the nineteenth century by then Queensland railway commissioner Robert John Gray.

The namesake comes from the spring water and sandstone bluffs (broad rounded cliffs) that were prevalent in the area, hence ‘Spring Bluff’.

The railway station today itself serves no operational capacity, this having been ended in 1992, but it still serves as a reminder of the railway heritage and famous garden landscapes of the area and social significance at the time.

The station was heritage listed by the National Trust of Queensland in 1994.
