Maryborough railway station is the terminal station of the Mildura line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Maryborough opening in 1874.Maryborough is a major junction with cross country routes to Moolort and Ararat. The Avoca line from Ararat is standard gauge and dual gauge track that runs through Maryborough to the north as far as Dunolly. There are the remains of dock platforms at both ends of the main platform.HistoryThe current station building was erected in 1890 with 25 rooms and a clock tower, of red brick with stucco trimming. In 1895, Mark Twain visited Maryborough, which he dryly observed as being: "A railway station with a town attached". Some people believe bureaucratic error led to the station being built from plans for the station intended for Maryborough, Queensland (a much larger town), and others from Melbourne's Spencer Street Station (now Southern Cross Station), as it was a much larger station than those in the state's capital city. The station closed on 12 September 1993 when The Vinelander was withdrawn and replaced by road coaches.In 2006/07 Maryborough station was restored, with repairs to the towers, clock, facade, portico, roof and guttering. Stage 2 included slating, rendering, glazing and moulding repairs to match the works conducted during the first stage of works.To visit Maryborough Railway Station on your trip to Maryborough, use our Maryborough tour itinerary tool.
