Drop by Road Transport Hall of Fame to see a huge collection of big trucks, old road trains, vintage cars, motorcycles, engines, and special tools. This museum of transportation includes over 100 restored vehicles, many of which were used by the pioneers who conquered Australia’s outback. 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. Your admission ticket is valid for two days, so explore the fascinating history of transportation at your own speed.
