Seddon railway station is located on the Werribee and Williamstown lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the western Melbourne suburb of Seddon, opening on 10 December 1906, as a double line block post with a signal box, for the control of trains in the section from Footscray to Yarraville stations. The block post closed in 1912, but automatic signalling was not provided on the section until 1927.[1][2]

The former timber buildings were demolished in 1980,[3] and were replaced with the current station buildings in 1981.[4]
