Station overview[edit]

Facilities[edit]

Narre Warren is located at the eastern (Down) end of the Webb Street level crossing, which also provides station access.

The station consists of two platforms, in an island format, with a semi-large fibro building at the Flinders Street (Up) end of the station. The building houses an enclosed waiting area, toilets and ticket facilities. A myki ticket vending machine is located inside the waiting area, which is able to top up and dispense cards.

There is also a small cafe at the station, which is open in the morning peak, selling coffee and newspapers. It is located next to the entrance of the building. Also, a Protective Service Offices (PSO) pod is located next to the existing station building, which the PSO officers use from 6.00pm to last train every day.

Narre Warren receives, on average, two off-peak services per hour travelling to/from Melbourne on weekdays (with more services during peak hours), and 3 services an hour on weekends.

Westfield Fountain Gate is a short walk from the station.
