Bowelling is the location of a former railway station in the south west region of Western Australia.

It was a junction of the Narrogin to Collie (usually known as Bowelling to Narrogin) and the Wagin to Collie (usually known as Bowelling to Wagin) railway lines.

Narrogin and Wagin were the locations of junctions on the Great Southern Railway, while the railway to Collie connected with the South Western Railway at Brunswick Junction.

The branch lines were regularly reviewed as to their viability in the 1980s by Westrail management, and also by the Transport Commission.
