Croydon's Heritage Precinct with police station, jail, Sergeant's residence, town hall and courthouse, the oldest building in Croydon (circa 1887) are open and free for visitors to wander through. The Mining Museum has an operable 'stamper' on the original Iguana Consul Mine.

Croydon had a large population of Chinese settlers. Archaeologists rediscovered the Croydon Chinese Temple site.

The Gulflander train travels from Normanton to Croydon weekly, providing an historic journey.

Lake Belmore, situated only four kilometres from Croydon, offers Barramundi fishing all year! It is the ideal spot for recreational activities.
