Aspendale railway station is located on the Frankston line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Aspendale, opening in April 1891 as Aspendale Park Racecourse, and was renamed Aspendale on 1 August 1905.[1]

Boom barriers were provided at the Groves Street level crossing (directly south of the station) in 1977.[2] In 1981, the station buildings were rebuilt.[3]

In early 2014 a man was hit and killed by a Frankston-bound train, causing the boom gates at Aspendale station to stay down, preventing cars to go from Nepean Highway to Station Street.[4]
