About Northgate

Get directions

Northgate is 10km north of Brisbane CBD. Soon after the opening of the railway line in 1882 a Melbourne firm, McKenzie and Holland, opened a workshop immediately east of the railway station, then called Toombul. When the North Coast line was opened at the Toombul junction, the station’s name was changed to Northgate Junction (a combination of North Coast and Sandgate), and later was shortened to Northgate.
