Antiene (also spelled Antienne[5]) is a rural locality of the Upper Hunter Shire local government area in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.[1][2][6] Named after County Antrim in Northern Ireland, the locality was registered as "Antiene" because the request was made in illegible handwriting.[2][dubious ]

The Main North railway line passes through the locality and is the site of a coal unloader, used to unload coal destined for the Bayswater and Liddell power stations.[7] Until 2007, it was the site where the Main North railway became single track, the line has now been duplicated through to Muswellbrook to the north. A railway station opened at the site in 1890 and closed in 1975, no trace of this remains today.[8]


Antiene Post Office opened on 1 October 1906 and closed in 1965.[9]
