Civic railway station is located on the Newcastle line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the Civic part of Newcastle's central business district, opening on 30 March 1857 as Newcastle railway station. On 9 March 1858 it was renamed Honeysuckle and again on 1 September 1866 to Honeysuckle Point. The station closed in 1872 only to be reopened as its current name of Civic on 22 December 1935.
It is announced by the state government that the Central Coast & Newcastle Line will be truncated to Wickham on 26 December 2014 to allow construction of the Newcastle Light Rail. This will result in the closure of Civic station.
