The Melbourne and Suburban Railway Company was a railway company in Victoria, Australia. The company opened a line from Princes Bridge railway station in Melbourne, Australia to Punt Road (Richmond) and South Yarra (then called Gardiners Creek Road) in 1859, Prahran in 1859 and Windsor in 1860,[1] connecting with the St Kilda and Brighton Railway Company's line from St Kilda to Bay Street (now North Brighton) in 1859[2] and Beach Station (now Brighton Beach) in 1861.[3]

The Melbourne and Suburban Railway Company and the St Kilda and Brighton Railway Company were amalgamated with the Melbourne and Hobson's Bay Railway Company on 22 October 1864.[4] The combined company, known as the Melbourne and Hobsons Bay United Railway Company, was taken over by the Government of Victoria in 1878 and it became part of Victorian Railways.
