Palmwoods railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Palmwoods.

History[edit]

Palmwoods station opened in 1891.[1] The station today consists of one platform with a wooden structure. In 2009, the platform was extended at both its northern and southern ends with scaffolding and plywood materials.[2] Initially intended as an interim arrangement until a permanent extension was built, the temporary platform remains.[3]

Palmwoods has two passing loops on its western side, with one disused, as well as another that runs behind the platform on its eastern side.

Services[edit]

Palmwoods is serviced by Citytrain services to Brisbane, Nambour and Gympie North.[4] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays between Caboolture and Nambour as route 649.[5]
