Most locals would know about the Stationmaster and his house but they perhaps would not know how busy the station was in its heyday when tonnes of timber, gravel and fruit was transported down to Perth and beyond .


These signs were commissioned by the Shire of Mundaring with information supplied by Mundaring and Hills Historical Society. If you are passing the Morgan John Morgan Reserve on the corner of Burkinshaw and Railway Rds in Glen Forrest, please take the time to have a look at the new signs and learn more about the early beginnings of this locality previously known as Smith's Mill, now known as Glen Forrest.
