Dunmore railway station is located on the South Coast line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the suburb of Dunmore and indirectly Shellharbour, opening on 9 November 1887.[1]

The weatherboard station on Platform 2 dates from 1887.[2] It is scheduled to close when the nearby Shellharbour Junction station opens.[3]

As part of the electrification of the line to Kiama in 2001, the existing crossing loop was extended north and received a platform, albeit built out of scaffolding materials with most trains continuing to use the original platform.[4] The loop also provides access to the Boral's Dunmore Quarry. There was previously a level crossing immediately south of the station. This was closed in the late-2000s as part of improvement works to the adjacent Princes Highway.[5]

Platforms & services[edit]

Dunmore has two side platforms. It is serviced by NSW TrainLink South Coast line services travelling between Sydney Central, Bondi Junction and Kiama.[6]
