  • This was an unexpected stop on our way to Kakadu. My husband who loves anything to do with the railway thoroughly enjoyed taking lots of photos here. Could have stayed longer but we were on a schedule...  more »
  • On the way to Darwin, we stopped in the Adelaide River railway station and it there is even a museum. For a $ 5 we could see history in a few buildings. There's even a locomotive. The national holiday was just Picnic Day, we ate well and pobyli with the locals.

  • If anyone wants to see some history of all things railway in NT it is a must see. I wasn't expecting much but worth the donation entry price in my opinion.
  • The Adelaide River Station is a project of the Friends of the North Australian Railway and is maintained and actively developed by volunteers. The new transcontinental line runs beside the old NAR line adjacent to the station. Passing trains often slow and sound their horn to greet this historic site. A wave from the driver is not unusual.
  • When I was there it was an honesty box entrance. Was rather interesting. Not the biggest but I was in town and there isn't much else to see.
  • Small town residents are friendly and way more approachable and hospitable that city folk by a country mile!
