A PRECINCT STEEPED IN HISTORY

Opened in 1862, the Ballarat Station complex was the largest in Victoria and a key transport hub for goods bound export via Geelong and Melbourne. Upon the opening of The Goods Shed in 1863, export revenue increased five-fold, the largest amount of any regional centre at the time.

Rail played a major role in the majority of intrastate freight up until WW2, after which road freighting increased and numerous train lines closed. The Goods Shed was decommissioned in the late 20th Century, eventually falling into disrepair.
