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". The station closed on 12 September 1993 when the Vinelander was withdrawn and replaced by road coaches.In 2006/07 Maryborough station was restored, with repairs to the towers, clock, facade, portico, roof and guttering.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.In December 2008 as part of the Victorian Transport Plan, the State Government announced passenger rail services to Maryborough would resume. Services between Maryborough and Ballarat commenced in July 2010.
