Collingwood railway station is a train station located on the South Morang and Hurstbridge lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburbs of Abbotsford and Collingwood, and opened on 21 October 1901 as Collingwood Town Hall. It was renamed Collingwood on 1 May 1909.[1] The station buildings and platforms were rebuilt in 1987,[2][3] and were first noted in use by 7 September 1987.[4]

Whilst it is named for Collingwood (and the adjacent Collingwood Town Hall), the station is actually located in the neighbouring suburb of Abbotsford.[5]
