Burnley railway station is located on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein and Glen Waverley lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the inner eastern Melbourne suburb of Burnley opening as Burnley Street on 1 May 1880 being renamed Burnley on 1 September 1882.[1]

Stabling facilities are located at the eastern end of the station, adjacent to the Glen Waverley line, while an additional little used siding is located at the western end, as well as a signal box.

In August 1943 as part of the Ashworth Improvement Plan, a flyover at the eastern end was completed to allow Glen Waverley line trains to cross over the Hawthorn bound line.[2]

In 1966, the signal box was rebuilt, the Burnley Street level crossing was grade-separated and the line towards Richmond upgraded to quadruple track. The third line to Hawthorn was commissioned in 1972.[3] The stabling facilities were provided in 1997, as part of the closure and replacement of Jolimont Yard.[4]
