Climb aboard the iconic Gulflander, warmly known as the ‘Tin Hare’ and witness first-hand, a unique moment in Queensland’s history. Initially built to connect the pioneer river port of Normanton with Croydon’s rich gold fields, the Gulflander has steadfastly continued connecting Queenslanders and visitors with these isolated outback towns.
The Heritage-listed Normanton to Croydon line is a legend of the outback, retaining the original patented steel sleepers laid between 1888 and 1891. The Savannah-accredited onboard guides will regale passengers with stories of the land and tales of the region’s colourful characters whilst travelling the only railway line still measured in miles. Affectionately said to go from ‘nowhere to nowhere’, this is a ‘must do’ journey into Queensland’s past.
