'The station became a junction in September 1890 when the line to Rushworth opened, this line later being extended to Colbinabbin and Girgarre. The Rushworth line closed in 1987, and branched off at the southern end of the station.
The main timber station building has been fenced off, replaced by a new passenger shelter alongside. The station has the longest passing loop on the line, 870 metres in length, however in 2013 the loop was booked out of service due to poor track condition. A number of other sidings that serve a grain silo complex are opposite the platform. On 4 June 2014, the main building of the station was destroyed by a fire.
