History[edit]

The station opened in the early 1880s.

It is one of the very few stations in the network with no dedicated passenger parking. The station is serviced by two tracks. The two side platforms are accessible by pedestrian crossings at either end. The standard gauge line behind the Gawler bound platform is only used for interstate passenger and freight services. The station has two tin style shelters the same as at Kilkenny and Dudley Park .
