Buranda railway station is located on the Cleveland line in Queensland, Australia. It is one of two stations serving the Brisbane suburb of Woolloongabba, the other being Park Road.

West of the station, the line joins the Beenleigh line via a triangle junction.[1]

History[edit]

Buranda station opened in 1889 as Logan Road, being renamed Buranda in 1917.[2][3]

On 15 July 1996, the Fisherman Islands line to the Port of Brisbane opened to the north of the station.[4][5]

In the early hours of 29 March 2009, the main station building on platform one was destroyed by fire.[6] A 17-year-old man was later charged with one count of arson following the incident.[7]
