Glenalta railway station is located on the Belair line.[1] Situated in the Adelaide southern foothills suburb of Glenalta, it is 19.3 kilometres from Adelaide station.

History[edit]

Genalta station opened as Belair Road.[2] In 1995, the eastern side platform was closed when the inbound line was converted to standard gauge as part of the One Nation Adelaide-Melbourne line gauge conversion project. During the late 1990s/early 2000s, the original down shelter was replaced with the current shelter.
