Kirrawee railway station is located on the Cronulla line, serving the Sydney suburb of Kirrawee. It is served by Sydney Trains T4 line services.

History[edit]

Kirrawee station opened on 16 December 1939 when the Cronulla line opened from Sutherland to Cronulla.[2] In 1954 there was a holdup, and a young man stole ₤43.[3] Kirrawee railway station was rebuilt as part of the duplication of the remaining single track sections of the Cronulla line, under the Rail Clearways Program. Work commenced in late 2007 and was completed in April 2010.[4][5] The platform used to extend to the other side of the Oak Road overbridge but was straightened by extending the platform to the east.
