One of the site’s most popular exhibits is the chassis of the first Kenworth truck ever produced, which came off the production line in 1971. This comprehensive museum, the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, showcases great Australian vehicles and narrates the story of intrepid Australians who drove these machines over some of the world’s most difficult roads.

  • I had only 40 minutes. It's a factory Museum of the Australian branch of DAF trucks of the past 40 years. If you like trucks and transport museums, is right here.

  • Went because of family connection to Kenworth. Couldn't believe this place, the Kenworth exhibit is quite impressive. The rooms are spotlessly clean. And the gleaming truck cabs dating from the 1960s ...  more »
  • I wasn't sure what to expect but spent a good couple of hours there. There is a nice selection of Kenworths to look at. A good look at the history of road transport.  more »

  • Hidden gem. What a great museum. If you love your kenworths then this is definitely for you otherwise a must do in Alice.
  • Lots and lots of vehicles. Many trucks. Some interesting old cars. Amazing how much stuff there is. Hot walking round the outside yards.
  • If you are a truck lover, prepare for hours of drooling. Amazing display of vehicles.
  • Well worth the visit!! Very interesting and a huge connection. Could spend a couple of days there...easily...sad is it has to close.
  • Holy cow! We come late in the day and were here for 4 hrs but trust me you could be here for the whole day with out any issues..... It has one of just about everything on about 10 areas from new, to old to very bl00dy old. Well done to the team that have put this one together.... Cost is $20 per adult. Clean toilet block. Small tea kitchen just next door.
