Numurkah is a closed railway station on the Goulburn Valley railway in the town of Numurkah, Victoria, Australia. The station opened as the terminus of the railway from Shepparton on 1 September 1881 The line was extended north to Strathmerton and Cobram in October 1888, as well as a short distance west to Nathalia. The latter line was extended to Picola in 1896 as the Picola line, with the junction located to the north of the station at the down end.
New station buildings were opened on 29 May 1969. Passenger services beyond the station to Cobram were discontinued in 1981 as part of the New Deal timetable, but were resumed in 1983. The final closure was in 1993, when the Cobram service was cut back to Shepparton, as it is today. Present facilities at the station include a disused platform, a station building now leased to a local business, a footbridge over the tracks, a disconnected turntable, and grain silos.
