Traralgon railway station is located on the Orbost line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the city of Traralgon opening on 1 June 1877.[1][2] It was formerly the junction of the cross country branch line to Maffra and Stratford (closed between 1987-1995)[3] and has historically been the Gippsland region's principal operational location.

In 1995 a new station was built. This current station is located on the opposite side of the tracks to the former station. The former station building still exists and is under private ownership. The area still retains a turntable and engine shed, with the latter listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Traralgon station is now only used for passenger services, with freight operations ceasing in 1994.

Electification of the Gippsland Line to Traralgon was completed between 1954-1956 to support freight traffic in the Latrobe Valley. Freight traffic declined as demand decreased, and Traralgon station was eventually de-electrified in 1987.[4]
