The 'Town of Topiary' maintains over 100 imaginative topiary characters along the main street.


The town was built on the back of its high-quality limestone cement, which was used to build the Sydney Harbour Bridge, much of early Melbourne, and many of the great construction projects around Australia.

Note the extraordinarily wide main street, designed so the bullock teams of old could turn around in one-sweep.


The New Railton Market is now held inside and outside the Kings Hall, Railton, and attracts about 40 stalls. It is held every three months, Feb, May, Aug and Nov. There is also a dining area serving pastries, cakes, coffee, and teas, and is a great place to meet up with friends.
