Gosford railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the northern Central Coast city of Gosford opening on 15 August 1887.[1]

Between January 1960 and April 1982,[2] Gosford was the northern extremity of the electrified network. The station buildings were demolished and replaced by the current structure which opened on 10 September 1993.[3]

An extensive network of stabling sidings exist north and south of the station. A functioning water crane is located at the northern end of Platform 2 and is used occasionally by passing steam locomotives.
