Bunyip railway station is a railway station on the Gippsland line, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Bunyip, and opened on 8 October 1877. The remains of a former goods and stock platform (the siding for the platform was removed in April 1988) and a crane are opposite the single platform.

On 26 August 1988, the electric staff system between Bunyip and Longwarry was abolished, and was replaced with automatic three position signalling. The signal box and all two position signals were also abolished.

The track up to the western end of the station was duplicated in 1956, but the section from Bunyip to Longwarry remains as single track, due to the bridge over the Bunyip River. The line was electrified in July 1954, and was removed between Bunyip and Warragul in December 1998, and Pakenham and Bunyip in 2005, as part of the Regional Fast Rail project. However, a substation and a short section of overhead, that are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, have been retained, to the west of the station.

The station was de-staffed on 26 May 1991.
