About Warrawee Station


Warrawee station opened on 1 August 1900. It was the last station built on the North Shore Line before it was extended to North Sydney. Local residents had to fight the railway commissioners for a railway station, given it is only one kilometre from Wahroonga station.

It consists of 2 platforms, sharing a single island, with access to the station from a bridge at the southern end. There are no shops on either side, while Knox (the school) is on the western side. It ranks 134th in the network with about 1,520 daily users.

Being a school and commuter station usage is concentrated around the morning, afternoon and evening peaks, hence be particularly muggle-aware at these times.


About Warrawee

Warrawee is believed to have come from an Aboriginal word meaning rest a while, stop here or to stand.

The suburb is rich in architectural history, with a number of houses designed by prominent architects. The earliest significant homes were Pibrac (1888), Cheddington (1890) and Wirepe (1893), all very fine houses.

As with all North Shore suburbs with Aboriginal names, the train station was named first, and then the suburb. Warrawee developed in the 1900s as an exclusive residential district with no shops, offices, post office, public school, churches or through roads (not much of which has changed).

At the 2016 census, the suburb of Warrawee recorded a population of 2,995.
