Munno Para railway station is located on the Gawler Central line.[1] Situated in the northern Adelaide suburb of Munno Para, it is located 32 kilometres from Adelaide station.

History[edit]

Munno Para station opened in 1978, consisting of two 95 metre side platforms.

In March 2012, two new side platforms capable of accommodating six carriages were built 60 metres south of the original station. This was in connection with the aborted plan to electrify the line. The platforms are connected by an overpass with lifts.[2][3]
