Mont Albert railway station is located on the Lilydale and Belgrave lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mont Albert, opening on 11 August 1890.[1]

Track amplification works resulted in the Box Hill bound platform being rebuilt and converted to an island platform in the 1960s.[2] Services on the third track from East Camberwell extended though the station to Box Hill in December 1971.[3]

Platforms & services[edit]

Mont Albert has one island platform (platforms 2 & 3) and one side platform (platform 1), linked by an underpass. It is serviced by Metro Trains' Lilydale and Belgrave line services.[4][5]
