Nambour railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Nambour in the Sunshine Coast Region.

History[edit]

On 16 December 1963, the present station building was opened by Minister for Transport Gordon Chalk. On 11 August 1988, a bus station was opened outside the station by Minister for Transport Ivan Gibbs. South of the station lie stabling sidings for electric multiple units. In 2016 a major upgrade to the station commenced.[1]

Services[edit]

Nambour is the terminus for City network services from Brisbane with two services daily continuing to Gympie.[2] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays to Caboolture as route 649.[3]

Nambour is also served by long-distance Traveltrain services; the Spirit of Queensland,[4] Spirit of the Outback[5] and the Bundaberg and Rockhamption Tilt Trains.[6]
