Distance from Gladstone: 87¼ kms, 54¼ miles
Wilmington is the terminus of the Gladstone-Wilmington Line and was a manned station until 1983 when all the station staff on the line were withdrawn. The town is located about half a mile to the west of the station.
Station and goods loops, a grain siding, a loco shed with coaling and watering facilities and a turning WYE.
Proposals were made to extend the line from Wilmington to Quorn or Port Augusta but never progressed.
The Gladstone-Wilmington Line is unsignalled. Train Order working is in operation on the line.
Passenger services ended in 1969. The line was closed in 1990 and the track has since been removed.
All that now remains at the former Wilmington station and yard are the grain silos, the water tower and the base of the yard crane.
The former right-of-way from Booleroo Centre to Wilmington has been converted into a rail trail, the Southern Flinders Rail Trail, that will eventually run the entire length of the line to Gladstone.
