Barry Beach in Australia was a railway branch line that opened on 2 April 1969 to service the oil fields in Bass Strait. During the existence of the branch line, the oil drilled from Bass Strait was the main source of freight transported beyond Leongatha, with the weekly train often hauling mixed superphosphate goods during its service to nearby townships. The Exxon-Mobil Barry Beach oil rail freight service operated until the closure of the South Gippsland line beyond Leongatha on June 30 1992 and the branch line itself was eventually dismantled in 1994. The oil fields in Bass Strait are still active with ocean ships transporting the oil drilled from the still active Exxon-Mobil Marine Terminal at Barry Beach situated in Corner Inlet.
The terminus was the southern-most mainland section of Australia's linked railway tracks. The branch line to Lavers Hill and Crowes, at the Melba Gully Road, went slightly further south, but did not link to the mainline Victorian network as it was a narrower gauge.
