Climb aboard the legendary Gulflander for a rail journey unlike any other. Originally built to connect the once bustling river port of Normanton with the rich gold fields of Croydon, today the Gulflander is a tourism icon and working tribute to the early pioneers of the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Affectionately said to go from ‘nowhere to nowhere’, the Heritage Listed Normanton to Croydon line was never connected to the state rail network. This isolated railway is heritage listed and the only line in Queensland still measured in miles.
Old RM93 is the longest-serving railmotor the line has seen and one of only a few still running in Australia. Built in 1950 it provides a unique experience where you can sit up with the driver and take in his view of this rugged lane. During the journey, passengers will learn about the diverse Gulf landscape and its rich past.
