Clayton railway station is located on the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Clayton opening on 6 January 1880 as Clayton's Road, being renamed Clayton on 6 July 1891.[1] It was upgraded to a Premium station in 1998.[2]

In March 2014, the State Government announced a grade separation project to replace the Clayton and Centre Road level crossings on either side of the station. This will include rebuilding the station.[3]

The stations buildings at Clayton are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.[4]
