Longwarry railway station is located on the Gippsland line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Longwarry, and opened on 1 July 1881.[1]

The track east of the station was duplicated in 1952, but the section between Bunyip and Longwarry remains single track, because the bridge over the Bunyip River has not been duplicated. The line was electrified in July 1954, but electrification was removed in December 1998.[1]

On 26 August 1988, the electric staff safeworking system between Longwarry and Bunyip was abolished, and was replaced with automatic three-position signalling.[2] The double line block system between Longwarry and Warragul was also abolished, along with the signal box and all two position signals.[2] At the same time, boom barriers were provided at the Yannathan Road level crossing, replacing hand-operated gates.[2]
