Greensborough railway station is located on the Hurstbridge line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Greensborough opening on 5 June 1902.[1] It was upgraded to a Premium station on 21 June 1996.[2]

Because of the curvature of the line, northbound (Hurstbridge) bound services head south-east upon departing the station and likewise southbound (Flinders Street) bound services head north-west.

Just past the station, the double track becomes single for the remainder of the journey to Hurstbridge. Some peak hour services to and from Flinders Street terminate at Greensborough.
