Ouyen is a closed railway station in Ouyen on the Mildura railway line in Victoria, Australia. The station is the junction for the Pinnaroo line westward to Panitya and Pinnaroo.

The station opened on 15 January 1903 along with the line from Woomelang to Hattah. No facilities were provided. The line from Ouyen to Murrayville opened on 25 June 1912. In 1913 a 53' turntable was provided, the yard at this time consisting of six through roads and a number of dead-end sidings. A station building and goods shed also existed at this time. Grain silos were provided at the station in the 1930s. From 1948 a railcar passenger service was provided to Pinnaroo, the last run being in November 1968, and the turntable was removed the next year. Services to Mildura continued through to September 1993, at which point the station was closed to passengers.
