The Melbourne bound train departs the Ballarat Railway Station from Platform 1.
The station was constructed when the railway line first began servicing the city in 1862.
A notable design in the conservative Classical manner, the building is distinguished by its elevated pedimented portico, clock tower and arcade, and by the enclosed platform shed, which is very uncommon and is distinctively detailed. This example of Ballarat’s early great architecture is based on late Nineteenth Century railway systems built to the best of British design, standards and construction.
