Terang railway station is located on the Port Fairy line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Terang opening on 23 April 1887 as the terminus of the line from Camperdown. On 4 February 1890, the line was extended to Warrnambool.
The building itself consists of a single level. Notable features include round arched windows, tall octagonal chimney stacks, cream brick dressings and a gambrel roof to the porch.
The station represents an intact example of a station building design stemming from the Victorian Government Railway Construction Act 1884. As a result, the station is heritage listed and holds a historical significance to south-west Victoria.
During the first year of operation, the station sold 11,510 tickets to Camperdown for a total revenue of £11,157. At the peak of operations the station had a four road yard, today it has a single dead end siding.
