Camperdown railway station is located on the Port Fairy line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Camperdown, and opened on 2 July 1883, as the terminus of the line from Colac. On 23 April 1887, the line was extended to Terang.
The station was once the junction for the Timboon line, which branched off at the western end of the station. All signalling and safeworking equipment at the junction were abolished by September 1987.
The refreshments rooms at Camperdown closed in March 1976. The passenger facilities were refurbished in late 1984/early 1985. It was also in 1985 that the former freight centre closed, with the freight office demolished by August of the same year.
In September 1988, the former No. 2 and No. 4 roads, and the Shell, Mobil and the locomotive and works sidings were all abolished. A number of signal posts were also abolished, along with a ground lever frame.
The Warrnambool freight train crosses the weekday morning Up train in the crossing loop. The station consists of a waiting room, ticket/customer service desk and toilets.
