What is significant?
The Patchewollock Railway Station Complex was constructed in 1919 on the Patchewollock-Hopetoun line by the Victorian Railways. It consists of a small, timber station building, with office and former lobby, and a gable roof and posted verandah on a low-level platform. The complex also includes a standard timber van goods shed and goods shed. The goods shed platform, loading platform and toilet shed have all been removed. In 1986 the station was closed and the railway line to Patchewollock was discontinued. Consequently the tracks have mostly been removed, with a small section of the tracks being retained immediately in front of the station building.

Patchewollock Railway Station Complex is architecturally significant as a rare and intact example of a series of stations built in Victoria in the early twentieth century. It is the only 1919 'Manangatang' Type B Style station building in existence. The 'Manangatang' style of station building is of a rectangular plan, designed to allow for future extension along the main axis.
