Chelmer railway station is located on the Main line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the Brisbane suburb of Chelmer.

History[edit]

The original station opened north of its current location in 1876 as Oxley's Point. In 1888, the station was renamed Riverton.[1] A siding was built at the current station location in 1881, which was later converted into the current station in 1889. Riverton was closed that same year.[2]

The line through Chelmer was duplicated in June 1886. The station was rebuilt in 1959 as part of the quadruplication of the line.[3]

Services[edit]

Chelmer is served by City network services operating from Nambour, Caboolture, Kippa-Ring and Bowen Hills to Springfield Central, Ipswich and Rosewood.[4][5]
