Gympie North is a railway station on the Nambour and Gympie North Line of South East Queensland, Australia. It is part of the Queensland Rail City network, the terminus for interurban services using the North Coast Line, 172.21 km (107.01 mi) north of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland.

The station is in Zone 23 of the TransLink integrated public transport system. It is the northernmost point where TransLink fares continue to apply.

It is also served by daily Traveltrain services, including the flagship Tilt Train to Northern and Central Queensland destinations. A free QR Citytrain shuttle bus operates between the Gympie town centre and Gympie North railway station.

History[edit]

For more details on this topic, see Rail transport in Queensland.

Gympie North replaced the still-existing Gympie railway station as the rail hub for the area, as a result of deviations made in the 1990s. The old Gympie station is now used as the home station of the Mary Valley Railway steam train, which travels to Imbil on heritage and scenic tours.
