Hawthorn railway station is located on the Lilydale, Belgrave and Alamein lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn, opening on 13 April 1861.[1]

Originally Hawthorn was a terminus with a single platform, the current Platform 1. In 1882, an additional platform was constructed after the line was extended to Camberwell. In 1890, an island platform was constructed using a canopy from the original Flinders Street Station for the newly opened, and now closed, branch line to Kew.

A third track was added between Hawthorn and Burnley in 1972, which allows the centre track to be used as a bi-directional track for express services during peak hour and completed triplication of the line as far as Box Hill.

By the end of the 1980s, the station was in a dilapidated state and had not been painted for many years. It has since been fully restored and is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.[2]
