Little River railway station is located on the Melbourne-Geelong railway line in Little River, Victoria, Australia. There are two broad gauge passenger tracks at this station, and trains can travel in either direction on either line. The Western standard gauge line runs just west of the station, and is used by interstate freight trains and The Overland passenger service to Adelaide, but no passenger platform has been provided.
The station buildings and adjoining goods shed are some of the earliest station buildings in Victoria. They are constructed of bluestone and were completed by the Victorian Railways in 1864. Features of note include the basement holding cells and the Victorian Railways plaques on the station gables. In 2010 it was reported that the goods shed had started to crumble. Infrastructure owner VicTrack said it had conducted an inspection of the shed which revealed its doors and windows had been forced open, and VicTrack would liaise with the lessee V/Line to ensure the shed was secured as quickly as possible from further damage.
