Pikkara is a closed railway station in Adelaide, South Australia. It was a ground level stopping place during the passenger transport days of this line, and a 1965 reference mentioned that it was no longer used at that date.[citation needed] It was located just north of McMurtrie Road on the southeastern outskirts of McLaren Vale.[1]

The stop is now completely disused, the entire Willunga railway line having been dismantled in 1972 and later replaced with the Coast to Vines Rail Trail.
