Amazing place. A very interesting display. Well worth the visit. Our group consisted of grandma and grandpa, mum and dad, three year old girl and pregnant mum. The men in the family loved it, my husband and son-in-law interested in the large display of cars, buses, trucks. Kenworth have their own indoor display of trucks. Both indoor and outdoor displays.... More

Great place to fill in a morning or afternoon. Reasonable price $40 family. Kids and adults enjoyed. We didn't go to the Ghan side. Lots to read but interesting.

I had a great day out here. I spent about 3 hours here and saw a lot. Most of my time I spent reading the hall of fame picture boards. I knew a lot of the names from Aussie trucking companies [so this bit may not be of interest to oversee visitors]. I also spent a fair bit of time... More

The Ghan history was interesting, transport was fascinating, so much information in both areas, shame we had to pay twice, each venue had its own charge. More seats in Transport would be good.

This was interesting, especially if you're into trucks. My husband really enjoyed looking at everything.....every single vehicle! The Ghan museum next door was more interesting to me, there were lots of things to look at, old newspapers from the early Ghan days, tickets, dinner menus, old photos and heaps of memorabillia.

So much to see and learn about the early days of outback Australia and how the trucking industry played such an important part. Read the stories about some of the women that worked in the industry and how hard they worked to make sure that peoples goods got delivered. We have always found the story about "Toots" very interesting about... More

If you are coming to Alice springs then coming to the road transport hall of fame is a MUST as it is very special. All ages will enjoy it & even if you are not into trucks there is lots of other "down memory lane " memorabilia. The photos alone are worth a sqiz . The info history in this... More
