Gisborne railway station is located on the Bendigo line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of New Gisborne.[1]

Platforms & services[edit]

Gisborne has two side island platforms. It is serviced by V/Line Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill line services.[2][3][4] In the morning peak hour, trains to Melbourne depart from Platform 2, and trains to Bendigo depart from Platform 1, this reverses after 8:30am. This is to allow services in the peak direction of travel to utilise the single 160 km/h track that was upgraded in 2006 as part of the Regional Fast Rail project. In March 2014 the platforms were extended to accommodate longer trains.[5]
