Archer Park Rail Museum

Step back in time and visit the Archer Park Rail Museum (previously know as Archer Park Station and Steam Tram Museum), located in Denison Street, between Archer and Cambridge Streets, Rockhampton.

Experience a steam train arriving at the station or eavesdrop on conversations of passengers and railway workers from days gone by, with the revolutionary Digital Soundscape system.

Visit the museum on the weekend and take a ride on the fully restored Purrey Steam Tram. The tram is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world, and is a wonderful relic of Rockhampton's tram history dating back to 1909.

The museum covers the development and history of rail-based transportation in the major central Queensland town of Rockhampton and is set in the 100 year-old Archer Park rail station on Denison Street on the city's southside.

The museum tells the story of Archer Park Station (built in 1899) and the unique Purrey Steam Tram, through photographs, soundscapes and object-based exhibitions.
