Unmanned location on the  Peterborough-Terowie Line .

Passing and siding loops. A signal box and a small station building that were originally present on the main line had been removed by the start of the 1960s. After Belalie North was bypassed by the gauge conversion (1969-70) Gumbowie at 610m (2001ft) became the highest point in the SAR system.

The main line and passing loop were converted to dual gauge with the addition of a broad gauge (5ft 3in, 1600mm) track to the existing narrow gauge (3ft 6in, 1067mm) in 1970 but the siding remained narrow gauge only. The Peterborough-Terowie Line was closed in 1988.

Today nothing remains at Gumbowie to indicate that it was once a railway location.
