Dolau railway station is an unstaffed railway station with one platform serving the small village of Dolau in Powys, mid Wales. It is located on the Heart of Wales Line and is served by four trains each direction Monday-Saturday and two trains each direction on Sundays. Passenger services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales. It is a request stop.

The station is beautifully cared for by a local group called the Dolau station action group: you can see plants, flowers, and a wooden waiting shelter with a clock outside. Inside the shelter, there is a guestbook and all the awards the station has won are hung up on the wall. H. M. Queen Elizabeth II unveiled a plaque at the station in 2002 commemorating her visit during the Golden Jubilee visit to Wales.

Formerly known as Dolau Halt, the suffix was dropped in 1969.
