HistoryEdit

Yantaringa station and siding opened sometime around 1883.[citation needed] The station, which takes its name from an aboriginal word for "big lookout",[1] was located in the Adelaide Hills suburb of Verdun, and is a few hundred metres to the east of the Yantaringa Tunnel.[2]

In 1925 it became a stopping place for rail motors.[3] The station/siding closed in 1964.[4]
