Dunmore railway station was located on the South Coast railway line in New South Wales, Australia. It served the southern Wollongong suburb of Dunmore and indirectly Shellharbour, opening on 9 November 1887. The weatherboard station on Platform 2 dates from 1887.[1][2]

As part of the electrification of the line to Kiama in 2001, the existing crossing loop was extended north and received a platform, albeit built out of scaffolding materials with most trains continuing to use the original platform.[3] The loop also provides access to Boral's Dunmore Quarry. There was previously a level crossing immediately south of the station. This was closed in the late-2000s as part of improvement works to the adjacent Princes Highway.[4]

Dunmore station closed on 21 November 2014, being replaced by Shellharbour Junction station, located 800 metres to the north.[5][6]
