Oatley railway station is located on the Illawarra line of Sydney's CityRail network, and serves the southern Sydney suburb of Oatley. It consists of an island platform with entry via a subway linking Oatley Parade and Mulga Road at the northern end. There are two sets of points at the city end of the station allowing trains to be terminated on either platform, although these are not currently used in regular timetabled service. Heading south from the city, Oatley is the last station before crossing the Georges River into the Sutherland Shire.
