Statement of significance:

Marulan is a rare surviving station dating from the opening of the line with relatively small changes to the fabric of the station building. Although much equipment at the site has been removed and there are only remnants of the goods yard surviving, the station building in particular is significant in understanding the development of railways and is a significant townscape and landscape element, particularly when viewed from the overbridge or the park in the main street. The residence and weighbridge add to the site, the weighbridge indicating the nature of the remainder of the yard now deserted with most facilities removed and the residence relating to the rear of the station building with its frontage to the main street.
