Redfern, railway station

Redfern railway station is one of the biggest junctions in Sydney, second only to Central. This station was originally called Eveleigh, when Redfern was the name used for the original Sydney terminus, located just north of this site and used until Central was opened. This entrance and booking office along Lawson Street was built in 1874.


  1. I would have thought that Strathfield was bigger than Redfern, no?

    I must check my dates: I have the second incarnation of central dated at 1876 and yet it was still being called Redfern Station.

  2. Redfern has 12 platforms. Strathfield has 8 platforms.
