North Geelong railway station is located on the Port Fairy line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Geelong suburb of North Geelong opening as West Geelong on 1 August 1883, being renamed on 1 January 1886.[1][2]

It is located on the Geelong side of the junction of the Ballarat and Melbourne lines. The North Geelong rail yards are located north of the station.

After a rearrangement of the Ballarat line junction in 1907, the platform on the west side was removed and all trains used the one platform.[3] A further reorganisation in 1920 saw the second platform restored.[4]

In 1973, the Victoria Street level crossing adjacent to the southern end of the station was replaced by a road overpass and a pedestrian underpass. In 1976, both platforms were extended by over 60 metres, while the platforms and platform facings were renewed in 1979.[5] The main station building on Platform 1 was replaced on 8 August 1990, and in 2008 the smaller building on Platform 2 was replaced by a metal shelter.[2]

Platforms & services[edit]

North Geelong has two side platforms. It is serviced by V/Line Geelong and Warrnambool line services.[6][7]
