Riddells Creek is a railway station on the Echuca and Swan Hill railway lines in Riddells Creek, Victoria, Australia. It is 58km from Southern Cross station.Riddells Creek station was opened around 1862. It was a block post (using the telegraph instrument) by 1879 but only for the Up line. The Down line was worked under block conditions by 1888 and Winter’s instruments had been provided by 1890. The station was renamed ‘Riddell’ in 1904 as part of a policy to adopt short station names (the full name, sans apostrophe, was restored in 1976). A six lever frame was provided in 1927, but the frame only worked the signals. Riddells Creek was closed as a block post in 1993.
