Cottesloe station was originally established as Bullens Siding in 1884. Robert Napoleon Bullen was the proprietor of the Albion Hotel. The station was a request stop. Passengers could stop the train with a provided red flag in daylight or a candle in a jar at night. In June 1892 the station was renamed Cottesloe and became a regular stop for trains.
Cottesloe station is located on the eastern edge of Cottesloe near the boundary with Peppermint Grove. The tracks lie between Curtin Avenue and Railway Street, two important roads in the area. There are two access points from each of these roads: At the southern end of the platform a pedestrian bridge provides access by stairs to the platform; those on the northern end of the platform require crossing the tracks at grade level to reach the platform.
Apart from B-pattern trains, all trains service Cottesloe station. During peak periods trains operate every twenty minutes in each direction. Trains run every 15 minutes during daylight off-peak hours, and every 30 minutes in the evenings till midnight. Between 5.30am and 6.00pm all Perth-bound trains from Cottesloe, except one, are Midland Line through-services terminating at Midland station.
There is a disused third platform, the original southbound platform. During electrification of the line, the original northbound platform became southbound and the goods platform was converted to northbound services. The goods line originally headed north to service the local Eureka flour mill. A graded grass corridor still marks the site of the track. There was once a manned signal cabin at the western end of the station.
