Tempe station opened on 15 October 1884 on the same date as of the Illawarra line from Redfern to Hurstville with two side platforms. The lines through Tempe were quadruplicated in 1919, with the western platform converted to an island platform and a new side platform built.
Prior the opening of Wolli Creek station and the Airport line in May 2000, Tempe was the junction between the East Hills and Illawarra lines, and local East Hills services stopped at the station utilising Platforms 1 and 2. Most of the East Hills line services now run via the Airport line and those peak hour services running via Sydenham do not stop at Tempe.
