Macleod railway station is located on the Hurstbridge line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Macleod, and opened on 1 March 1911.[1]

From 1911 to 1964, Macleod was the junction of the short, freight-only Mont Park branch line, which served the Mont Park psychiatric hospital. Platform 3 was built on the alignment of the former branch in the late 1970s, as were three sidings immediately to the south of the station. A number of train services terminate at Macleod, before proceeding to the sidings to stable.

Macleod became a Premium station in 2001.[2]
