Borenore Railway Station, one of several country town rail stations in New South Wales that are no longer operational. Situated roughly 270 kilometres / 167.77 miles north-west of Sydney, Borenore railway station is situated on the Broken Hill line (which runs north-west from Orange to Broken Hill). The station opened in October 1885, but it is unknown when it ceased operating as a railway station. These days the station building is used by a local tennis club. Incidentally, the Broken Hill line is also part of Australia's transcontinental railway running from Sydney to Perth.

Location: Borenore, New South Wales, Australia
