Traralgon railway station is located on the Bairnsdale line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the city of Traralgon opening on 1 June 1877.[1][2] It was formerly the junction of the cross country branch line to Maffra and Stratford (closed between 1987-1995)[3] and has historically been the Gippsland region's principal operational location.

In 1995 a new station was built. This current station is located on the opposite side of the tracks to the former station. The former station building still exists and is under private ownership. The area still retains a turntable and engine shed, with the latter listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. The majority of Gippsland line passenger services terminate at this location, which is now only used for passenger purposes, freight business ceasing in 1994.

Between 1954 and 1956 the line between Pakenham and Traralgon was electrified and in between 1987 and 2001 it was de-electrified.[4]
