Seaholme railway station is located on the Werribee line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the western Melbourne suburb of the same name, and opened on 26 January 1920.[4][5]


Seaholme station opened on what was then a branch line to Altona Beach.[4][5] Like the suburb itself, the station was named after a housing estate that was opened up in the early 1920s.[6]

In 1954, flashing light signals were provided at the Millers Road level crossing, located at the down end of the station,[4] with boom barriers provided in 1985.[4] In 2020, the boom barriers were replaced with a new mechanical system and repainted into the current red and white scheme.

During the 2016/2017 financial year, Seaholme was the fifth-least-used station on Melbourne's metropolitan network, with 103,446 passenger movements recorded.[7]

There used to be two stations, Mobiltown[8] and Williamstown Racecourse,[9] between Seaholme and Newport, but they are now closed and demolished.
