A temporary station was built on the site in 1888–1889 when the railway line was extended from Lilydale to Healesville. The current station was built in 1903 and is now listed with Heritage Victoria. The station closed along with the Healesville line in 1980. It sat idle for some years, but has now been restored as part of the Yarra Valley Railway, which is based out of Healesville. It currently opens on weekends, Wednesday of school holidays, and public holidays. Walker Railmotor RM22 operates heading out for approximately 4.5 km to near Tarrawarra Winery, after travelling through the historic tunnel.
As of April 2010, works are currently underway to restore the line to Yarra Glen railway station.
Boom gates were fitted to the Healesville-Kinglake Road level crossing in September 2022 alongside a reconstruction of the level crossing.
