Oxley railway station is located on the Main line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the Brisbane suburb of Oxley.

History[edit]

Oxley station was first opened in 1874. During the 1890s, a brick structure was built that still survives today.[1]

In 2010, as part of the quadruplication of the Main line from Corinda to Darra to accommodate Springfield line services, a pair of tracks were built on either side of the existing two, with the western track receiving a new platform.[2]

Services[edit]

Oxley is served by City network services operating from Nambour, Caboolture, Petrie and Bowen Hills to Springfield Central, Ipswich and Rosewood.[3][4]
