Information

Historic railway station site on the Tallarook to Mansfield line, now the Great Victorian Rail Trail.

When the railway line was constructed in the 1880’s Kerrisdale was the major construction point for the growing railway, with a major construction camp situated near the King Parrot Creek, just beyond the Kerrisdale Station proper. This camp, at the time, was a larger settlement than Yea, & boasted hotels, schools & a hospital. Nothing now remains of this temporary settlement.

Kerrisdale is now home to the “Kerrisdale Mountain Railway”, which houses many operating exhibits from a bygone era, including the original KerrisdaleStation Building & well worth a visit.
