Coomera railway station is located on the Gold Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the Gold Coast suburb of Coomera.

History[edit]

Coomera station opened on 25 February 1996 when the Gold Coast line opened from Beenleigh to Helensvale.[1] A track duplication to the south of the station, linking with Helensvale is underway to allow for additional capacity in time for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The duplication will require the construction of 8 new rail bridges, including one with a span of 860 metres across the Coomera River, Hope Island Road and Saltwater Creek.[2]

Services[edit]

Coomera is served by Gold Coast line services from Varsity Lakes to Bowen Hills, Doomben and Brisbane Airport Domestic.[3]
