Macleod railway station is located on the Hurstbridge line in Victoria, Australia, and serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Macleod. It opened on 1 March 1911,[1] and became denoted as a Premium station in 2001.

From 1911 to 1964, Macleod was the junction of the short, freight-only, Mont Park branch line, which served the Mont Park psychiatric hospital. Platform 3 was built on the alignment of the former branch in the late 1970s, as were three sidings immediately to the south of the station. A few train services terminate at Macleod before proceeding to the sidings to stable.
