Keon Park railway station is located on the South Morang line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Thomastown opening as Keonark on 16 December 1929 being renamed Keon Park in February 1972.[1]

The station opened at the same time as the extension of suburban services and electrification from Reservoir to Thomastown. In November 1959 the line from Reservoir was duplicated, in conjunction with the extension of suburban services to Lalor.[2] It remained the northern extremity for the double line until duplicated in November 2011 from Keon Park to Epping.[1][3]
