Grafton railway station is located on the North Coast line in 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.
