The station is located adjacent to the Caulfield campus of Monash University and Caulfield Racecourse. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.

The small brick building on Platform 1, near the main platform building, was provided in 1974. It was originally provided as a race ticket office.

It was upgraded to a Premium station on 13 June 1996, although the enclosed waiting area and ticket facilities were built in 1993 as part of the 'Travel Safe' program.
