History

The original permanent station building, opened in 1878.
Rail services came to Port Frederick with the opening of the temporary station in 1864. The building was small wooden structure, consisting of a ticket office, waiting room, ladies room, and separate huts for the men's lavatories and lamp room. The original station lasted for 14 years, but was considered grossly insufficient within a year of opening, and calls were soon made for a larger permanent building to be erected.

After years of lobbying by local leaders, the first permanent station building at Port Frederick was constructed on Quay Street in 1878 and first used in December of that year. It consisted of a central two storey building with single storey pavilions at either end. The ground floor housed a ticket office, waiting room, ladies room, parcels office, and a stationmaster's office with administrative offices on the first floor. The pavilions on each end of the main building housed the men's lavatories and porter's accommodation. This new station was designed according to plans drawn up by the Department of Public Works and Railways (MPW&R), with a layout typical of terminal stations of the time (although the terminal was unique in being two-storey), and forms one wing of the station as it exists today.
