Caulfield railway station is a railway station on the Gippsland and Stony Point trunk lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Caulfield East, and it opened on 7 May 1879.[4] In 2017-2018, it was the 7th busiest station in Melbourne's metropolitan network, with 4.7 million passenger movements.[3]

The station is located adjacent to the Caulfield campus of Monash University and Caulfield Racecourse. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.[5]

The small brick building on Platform 1, near the main platform building, was provided in 1974. It originally served as a race ticket office.[6]

Caulfield was upgraded to a Premium Station on 13 June 1996, although the enclosed waiting area and ticket facilities were built in 1993 as part of the 'Travel Safe' program.[7] The station underwent a minor refurbishment in 1994.[8]

Platforms and services[edit]

Caulfield has two side platforms and one island platform with two faces. It is served by Metro Trains' Pakenham,[9] Frankston,[10] and Cranbourne[11] line trains. It is also served by V/Line's Traralgon and Bairnsdale trains.[12]
