Beerburrum railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Beerburrum in the Sunshine Coast Region.

History[edit]

Looking towards the railway station, Beerburrum, 1916

Beerburrum station was originally a single platform with a crossing loop. As part of the construction of a new 14 kilometre alignment for the North Coast line from Caboolture to Beerburrum, a new station was built immediately to the east, opening on 14 April 2009. Beyond Beerburrum, the line becomes single track.[1][2] It is scheduled to be duplicated to Landsborough by 2021.[3]

Services[edit]

Beerburrum is serviced by City network services to Brisbane, Nambour and Gympie North.[4] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line north of Beerburrum, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays between Caboolture and Nambour as route 649.[5]
