Moe railway station is located on the Gippsland line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Moe, and opened on 1 March 1878.[1]

It was formerly the junction station for the narrow gauge Walhalla line and the broad gauge Thorpdale and Yallourn lines.[2][3][4]

A 70 ft. turntable also existed at Moe, until the mid 1960s.[5]

Construction of the current station building commenced in late 1991, and was completed by 1992, with the former station building demolished shortly after.[6]
