Claisebrook is a Transperth railway station 1300 metres from Perth, in Western Australia, on the Armadale/Thornlie and Midland lines.


Opened in 1883 under the name East Perth, Claisebrook station is a busy junction along the Midland and Armadale/Thornlie lines due to both lines running through the station and the Claisebrook railway depot being next door.

In 1969, a new railway terminal was built 600 m away on the Midland line called East Perth, and caused this station to be renamed Claisebrook after a watercourse that is near the station.[1][2] Between 2002 and 2003 the station was mostly rebuilt with new station structures, signage, platform finishes and a footbridge.


The current platforms are currently in use at Claisebrook:
