Glen Waverley railway station is the terminus of the Glen Waverley line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Glen Waverley, opening on 5 May 1930.[1]

Stabling facilities are located directly opposite to the station. On 23 June 1979, a fire destroyed Tait motor carriage 339M whilst stabled in No. 4 track. The fire also damaged trailer carriage 407T and two stabled Hitachi sets.[2]

The original station was built adjacent to Springvale Road, until the station was relocated west to its current location in 1963. The old station building was shifted to Epping, which became the terminus of the Epping line in November 1964.[3] The section between Syndal and Glen Waverley was duplicated on 29 November 1964. It was upgraded to a Premium station on 16 August 1995.[4]

In 2012, construction of the 'Ikon' apartment complex began on the station site, as part of Victrack's station precinct enhancement program.[5] The $70 million development was completed in 2013, with the proceeds being used to fund a $1.8 million upgrade to the station forecourt. Works were completed in mid 2014.[6]
