Fairfield railway station is located on the Hurstbridge line in Victoria, Australia, and serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Fairfield. The station was called Fairfield Park when it opened on 8 May 1888, and was renamed Fairfield on 14 November 1943.
From 1891 to 1893, Fairfield was the junction station for the northern end of the former Outer Circle line, and was later the junction of the APM Siding, which operated from 1919 to the 1990s, and served the Australian Paper Manufacturers paper mill. Boom barriers replaced interlocked gates at the Station Street level crossing in 1969.
Fairfield Industrial Dog Object (FIDO), a 6-metre-tall wooden sculpture of a dog, is located adjacent to the level crossing, at the eastern end of Platform 2.
