BECKOM

Beckom is the next small town to visit, heading south on the Newell Highway. A very small town it is.

Beckom has a population of 170 people on the 2006 Census night. The town was established with the opening of the railway line in 1908. Passenger services ceased in 1983 and the station closed in 1985 however the line remains open for goods trains.

As small as the town is, Bustout qualification is met.

The Beckom Hotel is quite a grand building.

The Beckom church is active and has an historic rating.

The Beckom War Memorial is the Memorial Hall.

The Museum is represented by the ‘old’ agricultural artifacts.

Be sure to have refreshment at the hotel.
