Bayswater railway station is located on the Belgrave line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Bayswater opening on 4 December 1889.[1]

The current island platform opened on 19 December 1982, as part of the duplication of the line between Bayswater and Ringwood stations.[2] It was once the destination for freight trains conveying cement, the last train running on 24 June 1987 when the traffic was relocated to Lyndhurst station, near Dandenong.[3] Bayswater was upgraded to a Premium station in 2001.

In 1998 a train maintenance and stabling facilities opened as part of the replacement of Jolimont Yard. The buildings are approximately 2,850 m² in size, and permit bogie repair and replacement, under carriage and overhead work.[4]
