Lynton railway station is located on the Belair line between the Adelaide southern foothills suburbs of Lynton and Clapham, 10.7 kilometres from Adelaide station.[1]

The station was opened in the mid-1950s, replacing the Sleeps Hill halt which was provided with step-down platforms south of the Sleeps Hill Quarry Sidings, approximately 500 metres south of Lynton station.[2]

In 1995, the western 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. The platform was rebuilt in 2007.
