From Sunday 12 December, there will be new train timetables for the Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill lines as we prepare for the opening of Goornong Station. There will also be some minor timetable changes on the Ballarat Line.

What's changing on the Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill lines?

The new Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill timetables will see:

  • 18 services a week stop at the new Goornong Station, with 2 services per day during the week and 4 services per day on weekends.
  • All services from Echuca to Southern Cross will depart up to 2 minutes later and have a reduced journey time of 2 minutes.
  • All services from Southern Cross to Echuca will also have a reduced journey time of 2 minutes and will arrive in Echuca 2 minutes earlier.

What’s changing on the Ballarat Line?

There will be minor journey time changes on some Ballarat, Ararat and Maryborough services to give passengers a more reliable journey.

Stopping patterns at Deer Park on some Ballarat and Ararat services will change to make the pattern consistent across the timetable. 

Coach times will also be adjusted to keep connections with the new train times at Ararat.
