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

History[edit]

Due to white-ant damage to the old building, the station underwent a major facelift with construction of a new station office, waiting shelters, bus shelters and carpark.

Services[edit]

Beerwah is serviced by City network services to Brisbane, Nambour and Gympie North.[1] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays between Caboolture and Nambour as route 649.[2]
