Malvern railway station is located on the Pakenham, Cranbourne and Frankston lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Malvern, and opened on 7 May 1879.[2]

The station was rebuilt in 1914, as part of quadruplication and re-grading of the track between South Yarra and Caulfield. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.[3]
