Waitara Police Station (Former) 2019

This building was constructed about 1940 as the Waitara Police Station - It served this purpose until the 1980s when the property was sold.

This property was purchased by the Police Department from W. Wilkes in December 1910; at the time of purchase there was a large villa residence on the property which was retained.

During 1911 alterations were made to the villa residence, with a new lock-up (now located at Memorial Place), also constructed at this time.

It seems the station remained without a dedicated office until construction of the present building.
