Darling railway station is located on the Glen Waverley line in Victoria, Australia. It opened on 24 March 1890, and serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Malvern East.[1]

The line through the station was originally built to link Burnley to the Outer Circle line at Waverley Road, and on to Oakleigh. The outer part of the line beyond Darling closed on 9 December 1895.[2] It was re-opened to Eastmalvern on 3 February 1929, and the line was then extended to Glen Waverley on 5 May 1930.

Darling was upgraded to a Premium station in 2008, although the current platform buildings date back to 1979.[3]
