Rosanna railway station is located on the Hurstbridge line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Rosanna, and it opened on 1 October 1927.[1]

Flashing light signals replaced wigwags at the former Lower Plenty Road level crossing, which was located at the Down end of the station, in 1958, in conjunction with the duplication of the line between Rosanna Junction (formerly located at the Up end of the station) and Macleod station.[1] Boom barriers were provided later on in 1972.[2] Three years later, in 1975, new station buildings were provided.[3]

The station was closed on 6 October 2017, and a new elevated station was opened on 4 May 2018, as part of the removal of the Lower Plenty Road level crossing, and the duplication of the Hurstbridge line between Rosanna and Heidelberg stations.[4][5]
