Shellharbour Junction station is a railway station on the South Coast line in New South Wales. It replaced Dunmore station. The new station is closer to new residential development around the suburb of Flinders. By comparison, Dunmore had very little residential development.

The station was originally to be called Flinders, but in February 2013 it was announced that the station would instead be named Shell Cove.[1][2] Construction commenced in August 2013.[3] In September 2014, station signage was erected confirming the station would be named Shellharbour Junction.[4] It opened on 22 November 2014.[5][6][7]
