Bombo railway station is located on the South Coast line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the adjacent Bombo Beach, and the suburb of North Kiama, opening on 9 November 1887 as North Kiama as the terminus of the line from Sydney. On 1 May 1889 it was renamed Kiama. Following the line being extended to Bomaderry on 2 June 1893, it resumed the North Kiama name. In June 1907 it was again renamed as Bombo. It retains its original 1887 weatherboard station.
Bombo station holds the distinction of being the closest to the ocean in Australia. In 1974, a violent storm carried sand and sea foam across the railway line and the adjacent Princes Highway into Kiama cemetery.
Opposite the platform is a crossing loop that opened on 18 July 1925. As well as being used to stable freight trains it serves as a head shunt by freight trains entering RailCorp's Bombo Ballast Quarry to the north-west of the station.
