Hurstville railway station is located on the Illawarra line, serving the Sydney suburb of Hurstville. It is served by Sydney Trains T4 line services and NSW TrainLink South Coast line services.


The station during construction of the shopping centre

Hurstville station opened on 15 October 1884 on the terminus of the Illawarra line from Redfern. On 26 December 1885, the line was extended to Sutherland.[2] The station initially had two side platforms and two through running lines. When the two lines were doubled (4 lines) in 1925, the station was rebuilt with two island platforms. Hurstville remains the end of the four track section with the line continuing as two tracks south from this point.

In 1920 five people were killed when two trains collided while one was shunting at the station.[3]

In 1965, the air rights above the platforms were covered by the Hurstville Super Centre shopping centre, one of the first suburban stations in Sydney to receive such treatment of its overhead airspace. The original station buildings survived underneath until demolished during refurbishment in the early 1990s. The centre was refurbished in 2008 and rebranded Hurstville Central.[4]

There have previously been plans to build several residential towers above the station[5] but these plans have been shelved over concerns about the integrity of overhead supports in the event of a derailment.[6]
