Oakleigh railway station is located on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Oakleigh opening on 8 October 1877.[1]

The station was once the eastern end of both the Outer Circle line and the Rosstown Railway. In 1975 the signal box was provided with a route setting power interlocking system.[2] It was upgraded to a Premium station on 12 December 1995.[3]

Since 1989 the station has featured over 40 plywood cut-outs on its walls and surrounding the station. These illustrate the life-stories of Oakleigh residents who were aged between 15 and 70 when the murals were unveiled in September 1989. They underwent restoration in 2002.[4]
