Fairy Meadow railway station is located on the South Coast line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the Northern Wollongong suburb of Fairy Meadow, opening in 1887 as Cramsville. It was renamed Para-meadow on 3 October 1888, Balgownie on 13 December 1909 and Faiy Meadow in January 1956.[1]

The station underwent maintenance in early 2011. This included the resurfacing of the two platforms, new garden beds underneath the stairs and repainted exteriors. During 2013, the level crossing was upgraded. Featuring newer and safer barriers, louder sound alert and resurfaced walkway over the rail.
