Telopea Railway Station

Telopea /təlpiə/ is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Telopea is located 23 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Parramatta.


Telopea is named from Telopea speciosissima, the New South Wales waratah, a plant that was abundant in the area before it was colonised and which became the floral emblem of New South Wales.


Telopea railway station is on the Carlingford line of the CityRail network. The suburb is bordered by Kissing Point Road to the south and Pennant Hills Road to the north. The area is serviced by Sydney Buses route 545 [1]

Commercial areaEdit

Waratah Shopping Centre, located on Benaud Place, has many retail shops including an IGA supermarket, newsagent, chemist, kebab shop, and a hair and beauty salon. A small group of shops is also located opposite the railway station on Adderton Road.


Telopea is mainly low to low-medium density housing with most of the dwellings been built after the Second World War. The suburb is bisected by the Carlingford railway line with most of the medium density housing lying adjacent to the train line.


Telopea contains a large tract of bushland on its western edge, backing onto the Oatlands golf course. The bushland, the Vineyard Creek Reserve as it is known contains a spring-fed creek and has several waterfalls on its course before it disappears beneath Kissing Point road to the south. The creek and the bushland are protected as environmental areas.
