Travel Tips – prepare for your trip
How to beat the heat!
The Gulflander railmotor is more than 70 years old, hence the charm of this heritage experience! However, it does mean there is no air-conditioning. The train has open-air windows but in warmer months, inside the train can feel hot and humid.
Follow our steps to prep for tropical heat and hotter travel conditions.
Follow our steps to prep:
