The station has an unusually wide island platform, which is connected to the station entrance and the street by a pedestrian overpass. The platform included a garden and a private dining room for Governor Belmore who spent the summers in nearby Throsby Park from 1870 to 1872. The dining room had to be big enough for a cook to prepare simple dishes and for a footman to serve.
There is a grassy area at the south end of the station, with picnic tables in between the platforms. A dock platform previously existed at the northern end of Platform 1 for services to Wollongong, but this track has since been lifted. Immediately north of the station, is the junction for the Unanderra line.
