Grafton railway station is a railway station on the North Coast line in South Grafton, Clarence Valley Council, New South Wales, Australia. It serves the city of Grafton, opening on 12 October 1915 as South Grafton when the line opened from Glenreagh. It was renamed Grafton City on 1 October 1976 when the original Grafton station north of the Clarence River closed. Since 2005, it has again been known as Grafton Station.

The original building was replaced by a new building opened on 26 November 1993 by Division of Page member Ian Causley. Some of the older buildings on the site are listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register.
