The line through the station was originally built to link Burnley to the Outer Circle line and on to Oakleigh. The outer part of the line beyond Darling closed on 9 December 1895, and was not extended to Eastmalvern until 3 February 1929, and to Glen Waverley on 5 May 1930. Darling was upgraded to a Premium station in 2008, although the current platform buildings date back to 1979.
