Burwood railway station is located on the Alamein line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Glen Iris opening as Hartwell on 30 May 1890 being renamed Burwood on 1 August 1909. It was part of the first section of the Outer Circle line[1]

It was closed for a brief stint from May 1897 until July 1898, after the closure of the Outer Circle. However, after a public outcry, it soon reopened, first as part of the Deepdene Dasher steam service. In 1927, Burwood became part of the Ashburton line, which was then extended to become the present Alamein line in 1948.

Burwood station is named after Burwood House, which was built by William Palmer in 1852.[2]
