Mindaribba railway station is located on the North Coast line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the rural locality of the same name. It is served by NSW TrainLink Hunter line services travelling between Hamilton (Newcastle) and Dungog.

The station opened in August 1911 as Dunmore and was renamed Mindaribba the following year.[1]

Platforms & services[edit]

Mindaribba consists of a single wooden platform about three metres long. It is served by NSW TrainLink Hunter line services travelling between Hamilton (Newcastle) and Dungog. There are five services in each direction on weekdays, with three on Saturdays and two on Sundays.[2] It is a request stop with passengers required to notify the guard if they wish to alight. The platform is so small that it has attracted some media attention[3]

Opposite the platform is a 1,500 metre crossing loop.
