History

Ferntree Gully station opened on December 4 1889 as "Lower Ferntree Gully". It was renamed to "Ferntree Gully" in October 1962 before being renamed again to "Fern Tree Gully" in February 1972 [Victorian Railways Weekly Notice No. 9 of 1972.] , although in recent times most references to the station use the 1962 version, despite a lack of evidence that it has ever officially been changed back.
