Drouin opened on 1 March 1878, when the line was extended from Bunyip to Moe. The station, like the township itself, was supposedly named after a Frenchman invented a chlorination process for the extraction of gold and metals from ore, or an Aboriginal word meaning 'north wind'.
The signal box at Drouin closed in February 1988, with the block post abolished, all fixed signals covered and lights extinguished. The interlocked signal frame was also abolished. By October 1989, all former sidings and crossovers, and the associated overhead wire, were abolished, effectively leaving Drouin as a "through" station.
