Unanderra railway station is located on the South Coast line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the southern Wollongong suburb of Unanderra, opening on 9 November 1887.[1]

The station marks the end of the double track section of the South Coast line. Immediately south of the station is the junction with the Unanderra-Moss Vale line.

In 2011 the station was rebuilt. It was to receive an easy access upgrade however this was cancelled after the discovery of utility cables beneath the intended pit for the lift.[2]

Platforms & services[edit]

Unanderra has one island platform with two side faces. It is serviced by NSW TrainLink South Coast line services travelling between Sydney Central, Bondi Junction and Kiama.[3] Unlike other New South Wales stations, Platform 2 is for Sydney bound services, with trains normally operating on the right-hand side of the platform rather than the left. Platform 1 is on the western side while Platform 2 is on the eastern side.
