Woombye railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Woombye in the Sunshine Coast Region.

History[edit]

The station today consists of one platform with a wooden structure. In 2009, the platform was extended at both its northern and southern ends with scaffolding and plywood materials.[1] Initially intended as an interim arrangement until a permanent extension was built, the temporary platform remains.[2] Opposite the platform lies a passing loop and a disused goods yard.

Services[edit]

Woombye is serviced by City network services to Brisbane, Nambour and Gympie North.[3] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays between Caboolture and Nambour as route 649.[4]
