Queenscliff station was built to serve the town of the same name.
The main traffic dispatched was fish from the fishing fleet stationed at Queenscliff. Ordinance and explosives from the military's Swan Island depot was also shipped by rail.
A 3 foot gauge tramway existed between the years of 1886 and 1958 to serve the military facilities on Swan Bay. A gantry crane was provided at the down end of the Queenscliff yard to aid transhipment of goods.
The yard at Queenscliff was unusual in having three sets of three-way points used.
