Caulfield railway station is located on the Pakenham, Cranbourne and Frankston lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Caulfield East, opening on 7 May 1879.[1] In 2011/12, it was the 7th busiest station in Melbourne's metropolitan network, with 4.1 million passenger movements.[2]

The station is located adjacent to the Caulfield campus of Monash University and Caulfield Racecourse. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.[3]

The small brick building on Platform 1, near the main platform building, was provided in 1974. It was originally provided as a race ticket office.[4]

It 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.[5]
