Rushall railway station is located on the South Morang line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy North, in a part of the suburb that used to be known as Rushall, and opened on 1 January 1927. Until July 1948, it was located at the eastern end of the former Inner Circle line, which passed between Rushall and Royal Park.

The station backs up to the Merri Creek, but is connected to Westgarth by an 80 metre long narrow bridge for pedestrians and cyclists on the Merri Creek Trail.

On 6 February 2016, whilst operating a Flinders Street service, and negotiating the tightest curve on the metropolitan railway system, a trailer carriage of an X'Trapolis train derailed 100m north of the station, resulting in one injury. The line reopened the next day.

On 10 February 2016, another derailment, involving track machines, occurred near Rushall. This derailment resulted in buses replacing trains between Clifton Hill and Bell for much of 11 February. The line partially reopened for evening peak commuters later that day.
