For the railway station in Devon, England, see Lynton and Lynmouth railway station.

Lynton railway station on the Belair railway line is located between the Adelaide southern foothills suburbs of Lynton and Clapham, 10.7km by railway from the Adelaide Railway Station.

The station was opened in the mid-1950s, replacing the Sleeps Hill halt which was provided with step-down platforms south of the Sleeps Hill Quarry Sidings, approximately 500 m south of Lynton station.

The station has two platforms, but only the eastern platform, which was rebuilt in 2007, is in use. The eastern platform is served by broad gauge TransAdelaide railcars. The western platform became disused when the western track was converted to standard gauge in 1995. Prior to the conversion, the station closer to Adelaide on the Belair line was Clapham.
