Riversdale railway station is located on the Alamein line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Camberwell opening on 30 May 1890 along with the first section of the Outer Circle line, drawing its name from the adjacent Riversdale Road.[1]

Some trains also terminate at Riversdale after morning and evening peaks and return to Camberwell for stabling.

Though it was closed for a year in 1897/98 when the Outer Circle line closed, it reopened soon after, due to a public outcry.[2] The station also features unusual manually operated boom gates, with arms that are divided into two sections, so as not to collide with overhead tram wires.
