Pennant Hills station on Sydney's Sydney Trains network serves the suburb of Pennant Hills in Sydney's Hills District. Opening in 1886, this station lies on the Main Northern railway line. In recent years the station has undergone an upgrade. It has significant patronage due to the people of neighbouring suburbs Cherrybrook and West Pennant Hills utilising it. The station consists of two side platforms and two running tracks, the "Up" and "Down" Main North Lines.

Platform 1 used to be a little bit too short- when 8-car trains stopped, the furthest door to the back actually stopped off the platform, however passengers could exit through that door onto the sloping edge of the platform. In 2010 this was rectified due to the number of people catch the train's rear carriage to give them a hope of making the interchange at Epping onto the express trains on the Newcastle and Central Coast line.
