Boort was used for passenger but then ceased. The line is still opened but only runs freight. Trains don't run that often, once a month mainly in summer and don't know how many times in winter, it all depends on the harvest around here and when they need it. The location is a great place to take pictures with the yard still there.
The line only runs grain. Most of the time the trains going south but every now and then you get one going north. The trains mainly head towards Geelong but some go to Melbourne.
It can get quite hot hear. There are a few trees around but would suggest to bring a hat if your there for a long time. There's not really any point going in the winter.
The trip from Melbourne is around 3 hours. So to get there you want to get on the Calder Fwy and head towards Bendigo. When you're a couple a k's out of Bendigo you have two choices either to go through Bendigo or go past Bendigo and see some lovely rural towns. Both take the same time just the traffic in Bendigo will hold you up. If you want to doge Bendigo when you see a sign saying Mildura and Marong take that left as it will get you to Boort. When you get to a small town called Bridgewater go over the bridge then turn right or until you see a sign pointing towards Bridgewater-Serpenine road. Keep going straight after that. When you get to a tiny town called Durham Ox do a left signs should be up anyway. Head down that road for a bit and your there.
There is parking available for free down the main street in front of the butcher or you can even drive down to the station (thats not there anymore).
So take the train from Southern Cross to Bendigo then catch the bus going to Swan Hill and then get off at Boort.
Not Much really there's a BP, Pub and a beautiful lake.
