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.

History[edit]

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]
