Heyington railway station is located on the Glen Waverley line in Victoria, Australia. It opened on 24 March 1890[1] and serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Toorak.

The current station building on Platform 1 was provided in 1975.[2] Parcel facilities were also abolished around this time.[3]

Platforms & services[edit]

Heyington has two side platforms connected by a footbridge. Access to the platforms is provided by stairs only, making Heyington the only railway station in Melbourne not to have disabled access.[4] It is serviced by Metro Trains' Glen Waverley line services.[5]
