Kananook railway station is located on the Frankston line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Kananook, and opened on 25 August 1975.[1] It was named after nearby Kananook Creek.

Parts of the station were upgraded in 1991, including the pedestrian overpass and car park.[2] Further upgrades occurred in 2007, as part of the EastLink road project, linking Ringwood to Frankston.[3] The station building was dismantled and replaced with a shelter, and a freeway noise protection wall was constructed.

The old station building was a semi large fibro building at the centre of the station, with two semi-enclosed waiting areas on the platforms, with a disused booking office near the entrance of the station. It also had an ATM, however this was removed due to vandalism, well before the upgrade commenced.

The current Klauer Street overpass, located at the Up end of the station, was provided in 1974, replacing the Wells Road level crossing.[4]

The station was featured in the first episode of the television series Sensing Murder, which aired on Network Ten in September 2004.
