Esplanade Station is an underground railway station located in the CBD of Perth, Western Australia. Situated parallel to William Street, it features integrated bus services at the neighbouring Esplanade Busport. It is served by a north-south railway line, the southern part of which is the interburban Mandurah Line and the northern part of which is the urban Joondalup Line. Through services operate between these lines, connecting Esplanade Station to the Perth Underground station, less than 1 km away, the neighbouring southern city of Mandurah and the northern suburb of Clarkson. The station provides access to the Perth Water portion of the Swan River, as well as St. Georges Terrace and Mounts Bay Road.
