Archer Park Rail Museum

Rockhampton, Rockhampton Area

Archer Park Rail Museum contains many exhibitions associated with railways and the Rockhampton Council Tramways from 1899. Rolling stock, including the Purrey Steam Tram, and rail memorabilia have been collected from a variety of sources including private collectors, former rail workers, the "Friends of Archer Park", and Queensland Rail. A revolutionary digital soundscape system of sound effects and commentary enhances the experience as you wind you way through the authentic exhibitions.

Purrey Steam Tram rides are available on Sundays between 10 am to 1pm and Family Fun Days are held on the fourth Sunday of April, June, August and October, where there is a gold coin entry and small fee to ride the tram for those 14 years and over. The Tram does not run between the end of November until the beginning of February.

Archer Park Rail Museum is located on the infamous Denison Street, (where the main rail runs down the centre of the street) in Rockhampton, between Archer and Cambridge Streets.

This wonderful station is sure to have items to interest for many different age groups, and truly is a rail lovers delight.
