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.

  • What a great collection of trucks and buses. The Kenworth display was exceptional and world class. Great to see this part of our history preserved so well.  more »

  • Amazing collection of vehicles. Would allow a day for each half. The truck side had such a variety over decades of makes and models. Really looking forward to visiting again.
  • This is the most amazing display we have ever seen. So much information for anyone interested in trucks. We went for half an hour & stayed for 5 hours. A fantastic tourest attraction we have seen in 4 years of travling around Australia. Well done.
  • 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.
  • Very good, but very expensive now. It wasn't that expensive when I went years ago
  • So many things to look at. Being a Motorhead everything looked fantastic and interesting I could've spent hours in there.
