Williamsdene Central is a transport interchange situated in the regional city of Williamsdene, New Ingerland. The interchange services as the terminus for all BTB Commuter services, as well as the North Coast and Inter Island Sprint Rail services.
Williamsdene Central first opened as a railway station in 1932. A timber-built station located to the west of Beatrice Street served as the temporary station until the completion of the current brick and concrete building in 1938. Provision was made in the original design for two additional platforms, but even well in to the XXI century these have not been needed.
