Morphett Vale is a closed railway station in Adelaide, South Australia. A station master was appointed in 1915 but it was an unattended crossing station since 1957.[citation needed] Facilities were available for the handling of casks of wine, as this area was mainly covered in vineyards.

It is now disused, the entire Willunga railway line having been dismantled in 1972 and now replaced by the Coast to Vines Rail Trail.
