History

Dulwich Hill station opened on 1 February 1895 as Wardell Road when the Bankstown line opened from Sydenham to Belmore. It was renamed Dulwich Hill on 1 July 1920.

To the north of the station, lie two tracks that are part of the Metropolitan Goods line. Opposite the platform lay a triangular junction that connected the Metropolitan Goods line to a branch to Rozelle. This was removed in October 2012 in preparation for the conversion of the Rozelle line to light rail.

The station has two platforms in an island platform configuration, the only station on the section running parallel to the goods line not to be converted to side platforms. The station buildings date from 1935.
