Deepdene was a railway station on the Outer Circle located in the suburb of Balwyn, Melbourne, Australia. Located between Abercrombie Street and Whitehorse Road, it was opened on 24 March 1891, along with the line though it, and was named after the adjacent Deepdene House. Two side platforms were provided, along with a loop siding removed on initial closure but replaced on reopening. For a time the station was also open for goods.

The station was closed along with the line from 12 April 1893 until 14 May 1900. It was then the terminus of the Deepdene Dasher shuttle service from Riversdale, until the reopening of East Kew for goods on 11 February 1925. In the 1920's many lines around Melbourne were electrified however the Deepdene line was not due to lack of traffic. It was one of the last steam locomotives in Melbourne. The station was closed to passenger traffic on 9 October 1927, when the Deepdene Dasher was withdrawn, but goods services used the line though it until 1943.
