Canterbury railway station is located on the Lilydale and Belgrave lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Canterbury opening on 1 December 1882.[1]

In the 1930s a crossover was provided at the Melbourne end of the station, and a signal box provided to work the interlocked level crossing gates.[2]

Work on the grade separation of the Canterbury Road level crossing commenced in early 1966, and was completed on 15 September 1968. The works involved the use of temporary track to keep trains running, and raising the station six metres. Services on the third track from East Camberwell were extended though the station to Box Hill in December 1971.[3]
