More information about Archer Park Rail Museum

Enjoy the nostalgia and satisfy the curiosity within as you browse the exhibits and Rollingstock associated with the railways and tramways. Travel back in time and take a ride of the fully restored Purrey Steam Tram, considered to be the only operational one of its kind in the world. Enjoy a morning tea in this wonderful historic atmosphere as you listen to the sounds of hissing steam, the blast of the whistle and the clickety clack of the tram on the tracks. The Purrey Steam Tram operates each Sunday, 10am – 1pm from February to November each year.
