Caulfield railway station is a railway station on the Gippsland and Stony Point trunk lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Caulfield East, and it opened on 7 May 1879. In 2017-2018, it was the 7th busiest station in Melbourne's metropolitan network, with 4.7 million passenger movements.

The station is located adjacent to the Caulfield campus of Monash University and Caulfield Racecourse. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.

The small brick building on Platform 1, near the main platform building, was provided in 1974. It originally served as a race ticket office.

Caulfield was upgraded to a Premium Station on 13 June 1996, although the enclosed waiting area and ticket facilities were built in 1993 as part of the 'Travel Safe' program. The station underwent a minor refurbishment in 1994.
