East Kew was a railway station on the Outer Circle located in the suburb of Kew, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The station opened with the line on March 24 1891, and closed on April 12 1893, again with the line. It was located on the west side of Normanby Road, and a goods siding was also provided at Riversdale end.

The station was reopened on February 11, 1924, as a terminus of the line, at the east side of the level crossing. For goods traffic only, three loop sidings, dead end extension, and a headshunt at the Fairfield end were provided. The loop sidings were truncated in about 1935 at the east side of Normandy Road to eliminate a level crossing. Goods services were withdrawn on September 6 1943, and the line closed.
