Moree railway station is located on the Mungindi line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the town of Moree.

History[edit]

A busy scene at the station c.1911

The current station opened in 1904, replacing the original station located to the north that opened on 1 April 1897 when the line was extended from Boggabri.[1][2]

It served as the terminus of the line until it was extended to Bengerang on 29 September 1913 and ultimately Mungindi on 7 December 1914. Moree was also the junction station for the Boggabilla and Inverell lines.[2]

The station is an island platform with two faces. In 2009, a timber building at the southern end of the platform was destroyed by fire.[2]

Services[edit]

Moree is served by NSW TrainLink's daily Northern Tablelands Xplorer service operating to and from Sydney.[3] NSW TrainLink also operate a coach service to Grafton.[4]
