Malmsbury railway station is located on the Bendigo line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Malmsbury opening on 21 October 1862.[1]

A large bluestone station building remains on the former northern platform, and a collection of shelter sheds on the southern platform. As part of the Regional Fast Rail project, in 2006 the double track line from Kyneton to Bendigo was converted to single track, with the track on the Melbourne bound platform removed.[2]

Disused stations Taradale and Elphinstone are located between Malmsbury and Castlemaine. Demolished station Chewton was also located between Malmsbury and Castlemaine while Redesdale Junction was located between Malmsbury and Kyneton.
