Mooroolbark railway station is located on the Lilydale line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mooroolbark, opening on 10 October 1887.[1]

A crossover is located at the Up end of the station, which allows services to terminate here. The station also marks the end of double track on the Lilydale line.

The present day Platform 2 was provided in 1985, along with new track, to allow Down trains to enter the platform.[2][3][4] This was in conjunction with the provision of Automatic Signalling between Mooroolbark and Lilydale.[4]

In October 2013, three new small shelters were built at the ends of both platforms. Platform 1 has shelters at each end, while Platform 2 has one at the Down (Lilydale) end. Both platforms also had raised platforms installed, reducing the need for a wheelchair ramp to be used.

In 2015, the Level Crossing Removal Authority announced the removal of the Manchester Road level crossing. Preliminary planning has begun, though a construction date is yet to be announced.[5]
