Bus interchange

Wyong station was opened on 15 August 1887.[2] In 1912, the line was duplicated. In 1937, the eastern platform was converted to an island platform. A pair of passing loops were added south of the station in 1948. In the 1950s, a new bridge was built over Wyong Creek immediately south of the station, with the old railway bridge becoming part of the Pacific Highway.[3]

Between April 1982[4] and June 1984, Wyong was the northern extremity of the electrified network.[5] A brick building on Platforms 1 and 2 was replaced by the current structure in the 1990s.[6] On 1 November 1993, an upgraded footbridge with a new ticket office and lifts was opened by Minister for Transport Bruce Baird.[7]
