The Red Hill railway line in Melbourne, Australia, was a rural railway branching off from the Stony Point railway line at Bittern. The line had a fairly short life, opening on 2 December 1921 and closing on 29 June 1953.

Current status

The line was dismantled some time after it was closed, and most of the line from Bittern to Merricks is now on private property, while the right-of-way from Merricks to Red Hill remains, having been converted to a shared use rail trail.
