Events at Archer Park Rail Museum


Sunday 18th April 2021 and Sunday 22nd August 2021. 8am-1pm

This event will be held twice a year in the car park of the Museum.  Archer Park Rail Museum has a Covid Safe Plan for this event.  We will have food vendors, music and dancing groups, community displays, Classic/Ford/Historic cars, craft and market stalls and lots more!

While here our visitors can come into the Museum at a discount price of Adults $4, Children $2 and Tram Rides will be $2.50.

There will be a maximum of 200 rides on the day due to reduced seating to ensure the Covid social distancing.  We will sell tram rides by the ride/bench seat, the visitor will receive a ticket for their group –  1- 6 persons per seat.  Each trip will be colour coded with seat number on the ticket, and will be called for over the public announcement system, so that there will be no or limited lining up for the Tram ride.

We will sell our usual wonderful Scones with Jam and cream in the Refreshment Room and a Sausage Sizzle, and merchandise on the front veranda. Parking will only be at the archer street entrance end of the car park, or surrounding streets.



April, June & September

Special entry price of $6 per person – each Wednesday

The Purrey Steam Tram will operate on these special days – between 10am-1pm.

Archer Park’s School Holiday Program attracts several hundred young people each year.  

We have lots for the kids to do and see – they love to get up in the Steam and Diesel Locomotives, and look through the carriages!

There are questionnaires for primary/secondary students, colour packs for the younger kids for 50 cents, and snacks available from the Refreshment Room. 

The kids love the cat meowing, and the guard snoring  and the dog barking at the chooks!!  These wonderful sounds are completed by the ghost train going loudly through the station!!

NOTE: The Discount entry price will apply during January 2021 until school returns.
