Taringa railway station was a ground level stopping place during the passenger transport days of the Willunga railway line which opened in 1915, and a 1965 reference mentioned that it was no longer used at that date.[citation needed]

The Willunga railway line was dismantled in 1972 and later replaced by the Coast to Vines Rail Trail. Taringa is marked by a picnic shelter near Binney Road between McLaren Vale and Willunga.[1]
