Doboy railway station was a former railway station on QR Citytrain suburban network in Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. It was located between Murarrie and Hemmant stations on the Cleveland railway line.


Originally named Buruda, the Aboriginal word for forest oak,[1] it was renamed as Doboy railway station in 1929.[2] The station consisted of two short platforms and a pedestrian overbridge, and was predominantly used by workers at the nearby meatworks.[3]

Doboy railway station closed in 1993, along with the closure of the meatworks.[3]
