Going old-school through a timeless landscape.


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.
