The Cooktown Railway

The Cooktown Railway

 

Few railways have had a history as unusual as that of the 67 mile Cooktown Railway in North Queensland, thatoperated from 1885 until 1961.

The story of the Cooktown Railway is a fascinating one, as much part of the history of Cooktown as the repairing of Captain Cook's holed "Endeavour" there in 1770. Those interested in the history of North Queensland, and railway enthusiasts generally, will find much of interest in this book, which records Australia's most unusual railway.
