Archer Park Rail Museum reviews
A trip on the Steam Tram is a must do at the Archer Park Rail Museum. Trip on the 1939 tram is included in your entry price. Very interesting place to visit with a lot of Exhibits.

This is a nice museum with amazingly preserved pieces of history. Nearly in the heart of Rockhampton, inside the railway station you will discover how the trains of the area operated over the centuries and what it meant for the growth of the town. Staff members looking after the place are always smiling and passionate about this important place. Enjoy taking a look at what the inside of the carriages used to be and get a fantastic photo of sitting in the train driver's seat! Lastly, have a ride on the tram cart that travels through the town, lots of fun for the family.
The volunteers have really put their all into this place. Beautiful displays and very clever soundscape on the platform with life like models. My kids loved the ride on the tram. A well spent morning in Rockhampton.
