Thomas Hill Bardwell's grant was originally heavily timbered and bounded by Wolli Creek, Dowling Street and Wollongong Road. In 1881, the land was auctioned and 1,600 acres were subdivided. The railway station opened on the 21 September 1931 which opened up the area for home sites. The school opened in September 1943 and the post office opened in May 1946.

Bardwell Park Train Station Civic Pride

Bardwell Park Railway Station - including the 1931 platform, platform building, entry steps structure and overbridge - is of local heritage and historical significance. It was a major public work completed as an unemployment relief project during the Great Depression and today continues as a major transport hub for Bardwell Park.

The Station is also of aesthetic significance as an austere 1930s railway building with simple Art Deco detailing and fine brick workmanship that is evocative of the effects of the Depression on building programs for the NSW railways.

Funding for the signalisation of this location has been announced in the media. (See link below).  Once Roads and Maritime Services have prepared and lodged drawings with the Rockdale Local Traffic Committee for the proposed lights, Council will be in a position to advise the local traders and community of the impacts on existing parking and improved pedestrian outcomes.
