Awaba railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the City of Lake Macquarie town of Awaba opening on 15 August 1887.[1]

In April 1993, the original weatherboard station building on the western platform was damaged in a fire and later demolished.[2][3] It was replaced by the present lighter-weight structure.

Until its formal closure in December 1989, Awaba was the junction for the line to Wangi Power Station, the remnants of which remain behind Platform 1.[4] North of the station are two passing loops, although the northbound one has now been disconnected.

Platforms & services[edit]

Awaba has two side platforms. It is serviced by NSW TrainLink Central Coast & Newcastle Line services travelling from Sydney Central to Hamilton (Newcastle).[5]

Platform Line Stopping pattern Notes
