  • Well worth a visit. Fantastic tribute to the truckies who keep Australia running. Plenty to look at and read. Allocate a large chunk of time here in order to take everything in properly.
  • They really really really like Kenworth Trucks. Amazing collection
  • Absolutely awesome. The work thats gone into preserving the trucking industry within this country is amazing & we definitely recommend visiting. Its $16 entry which gains you 2 days which is needed if you want to read everything. The Kenworth trucks are great to see.
  • Great place to see the history of road transport in Australia, only thing wrong with the NRTHOF is, its so bloody far from the Central Coast, loved it so much I will be making the trip again very soon.
  • Very informative, the volunteers are great to chat with and it has a huge range. Plan nearly a full day to see it all but it can get hot during summer.
