Chatham railway station is located on the Lilydale and Belgrave lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Surrey Hills opening on 1 April 1927 with the current island platform only.[1]

Platform 3 was built when services on the third track from East Camberwell were extended through the station to Box Hill in December 1971.[2]

It was named for the English town of Chatham, in Kent.
