Long Gully railway station is located in Belair National Park, South Australia. It is about 26.7km by railway from Adelaide Railway Station.

Long Gully was a very useful station for hikers and bike riders, as the station was located within the national park.

The station was different from the others on the defunct Bridgewater line, as it consisted of a staffed ticket office, which probably closed in the 1960's. There was a single platform on the northern part of the track.

Long Gully station was closed in 1987 along with the Bridgewater line. The ticket office was demolished shortly after but most of the platform remains in place.
