Avoca Railway Station was constructed in 1876 by J Summerland, on the Avoca-Maryborough line for the Victorian Railways. The Avoca Railway Station is the most intact example of the ‘Dunolly style’, a style which was a standard railway station style of the day. The Station played a significant role in the development and prosperity of Avoca. Local wool, grain, livestock, fruit and firewood were all transported to lucrative Melbourne markets. The line was booked out of service on Friday, 21 January 2005. Although no longer in use, Avoca retains a brick station building, platform and goods shed. The Station Lamp Building underwent major restoration works. Works included brickwork, tuck pointing, roof re-slating, installation of new ridge capping, gutters and downpipes as well as new timber fascia’s, cornice, doors and windows. Works also included connecting both the Station Building and Lamp Room to town water and power.
