North Rockhampton railway station was a railway station in The Common, Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia.[1]

History

The station was built as the terminus of the North Rockhampton to Emu Park railway line which opened in 1888. The line was built to give Rockhampton residents easy access to the seaside.[2] Although Rockhampton had a railway station, it was on the southern side of the Fitzroy River and building a rail bridge across the river was seen as too expensive, so the line commenced on the north side of the river. However, having a disconnected railway line proved inconvenient and in 1899, the Rockhampton Junction railway line was built linking Rockhampton's main railway station with North Rockhampton via the Alexandra Railway Bridge over the Fitzroy River.[3]
