Subiaco railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Fremantle line, 3.7 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburbs of Subiaco and Wembley.


Subiaco station at platform level

Subiaco station opened in 1883.[1] The station closed on 1 September 1979 along with the rest of the Fremantle line, re-opening on 29 July 1983 when services were restored.[2] Up until the 1980s there was a freight receiving depot at this station, and a third platform.

As part of the Subi Centro project, 900 metres of rail line and the station were sunk in 1997/98.[3] The elevated signal cabin was restored and relocated to Whiteman Village Junction on the Bennett Brook Railway in January 2000.[1][4]

Until the opening of the William Street platforms at Perth station in October 2007, it was the only underground railway station on the Transperth network.


Subiaco station is served by Transperth Fremantle line services from Fremantle to Perth that continue through to Midland via the Midland line.[5][6]
