Located on Dennison Street between Archer and Cambridge Streets, the museum features a restored Purrey Steam Tram, one of nine tramcars and six trailers that operated in Rockhampton (1909 to 1939) and with Queensland Government Railways in Central Queensland.

Archer Park Station was opened in 1899. Enjoy the nostalgia and satisfy the curiosity within as you browse the exhibits and rolling stock associated with the railways and tramways. These items from a bygone era have been collected from a variety of sources, including private collectors, former rail workers, rail groups, Queensland Rail, the Capricorn Heritage Rail Association (now the Friends of Archer Park Inc.).

This heritage listed station is operated by the Friends of Archer Park Station & Steam Tram Museum Inc. for the Rockhampton Regional Council. We are a Non-profit Volunteer group whose philosophy is to support and grow the Museum for the benefit of the community.

Archer Park Rail Museum offers a unique experience for special events. Our venue may be hired for seminars, group functions, school and coach tours.

You can also hold Birthday or Christmas Celebrations during the day or evening, or a Child’s Birthday Party during open hours, particularly on a Sunday when the Tram is running.
