Moonee Ponds railway station is located on the Craigieburn line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Moonee Ponds. It opened on 1 November 1860, as part of the private Melbourne and Essendon Railway Company line to Essendon. The station closed with the line on 1 July 1864, but was reopened on 9 October 1871, under government ownership.[1][2]

The station building was provided in 1882, with a signal box provided in 1889, to control interlocked gates at the Puckle Street level crossing, until they were replaced with boom barriers in 1969.[2]
