Not Koolonong.

This station is on a now closed line.
It was not the terminus of the line, but the line was closed in stages and this station was for a few years a terminus after the line beyond it closed.
This station remained open only for seasonal grain traffic after the line beyond closed.

Noradjuha.
  Calgully Deputy Commissioner

Location:
Yes, Noradjuha it is.

It was on the cross-country Horsham to Hamilton line, and was later the terminus of a one-station branch from East Natimuk solely for grain traffic.

Dunolly has had big nuggetts found about there but I know of no station location changes. 60,000 sounds like more population than was ever there too.
  Valvegear Oliver Bullied, CME

Location: Richmond Vic
Dunolly is correct. The town itself had the differing locations, and reached 60,000 in the gold rush days.
The Welcome Stranger was found at Moliagul which is nearby.

Over to Rodo.

This station on a line closed in the mid 1980s, was named after an agricultural village to the south west. It could have been built directly north of the place it was named after but it was built further east so that it could also serve a gold mining settlement directly north of where the station was built.

Construction of this line was begun before the octopus act of the 1880s and the station was closed only a few years before the line' complete closure.
