Mordialloc railway station is located on the Frankston line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Mordialloc, and opened on 19 December 1881.[1][2]

Stabling facilities are located at the Frankston (Down) end of the station, whilst a third track is located through the middle of station, normally only used by used by Pacific National Long Island steel freight train, and trains shunting into the yard.[3] An underpass is located at the Up (Flinders Street) end of the station.

The Mordialloc station precinct has a number of heritage buildings and elements, including the cottage style historic station buildings (1882 & 1887), and the last remaining example of an Edwardian railway water tower (1910), also known as a "Type H" water tower,[4] in Victoria.[5]

Boom barriers were provided at both the McDonald Street and Bear Street level crossings in 1986.[6] In June 1988, the former signal box, which was located at the Down end of the station, was demolished, with the signal panel relocated to the main station building on Platform 1.[7]

It was upgraded to a Premium station on 5 December 1995.[8]

On September 9, 2013, whilst travelling through the McDonald Street level crossing, a wagon on the Long Island steel train derailed, causing lengthy delays.[9][10]

More recently, in October 2015, new accessible toilets were provided at the station.[11]
