Archer Park Rail Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Archer Park Rail Museum contains many exhibitions associated with railways and the Rockhampton Council Tramways from 1899. Rollingstock, 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 your way through the authentic exhibitions.

Purrey Steam Tram rides are available on Sundays between 10 am to 1 pm. 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 of interest for many different age groups and truly is a rail lovers delight.
