Bulli Black Diamond Heritage Centre - Bulli
Bulli Black Diamond Heritage Centre is located at the Bulli Railway Station. The museum's focus is the preservation of the 1887 Bulli Railway buildings. On display is the South Bulli Number Two steam locomotive imported in 1888 and used until the early 1960's. In 1956 Queen Elizabeth boarded the train for her return trip to Sydney from this station.
The centre has a collection of maps and objects relating to local mining life and the Bulli Mine which once operated on the escarpment. The Bulli Mine was the first source of coal, colloquially known as black diamond.
The Blinkco Room shows the social history of the area with heritage photos of Bulli, Woonona, Austinmer, Coledale and Stanwell Park and Bulli Railway Station, Nurse Taylor's Maternity Hospital, Housing Commission history and The Denmark Hotel. There are many photos from the early 1900's.
