This is one of the best assembled road transport or old truck museums in Australia. It includes the Hall of Fame for contributors to the road transport industry as well as many acres of old vehicles, many of which serviced the outback over many years. The "Kenworth" shed sponsored by Kenworth Trucks is also amazing with all conceivable types of... More

For a collection in a desert location, there was a huge variety of vehicles, even some cars. We enjoyed reading about the truck drivers and how the tour guides worked too. Those chains they put on the wheels are really heavy! Outside and further out the back were the big trucks - the kind we saw pulling road trains. Definitely... More

You need to take a bit of time to really appreciate how much there is to do and see here ! Really well set out and so many exhibitions to look at. We finished our time there with a fantastic Devonshire tea in the gardens. A must do !

Lots to see. I wanted to see the lorries and other vehicles, my wife came along! But it was well laid out with lots of extra info showing early days and the people involved. Even she found this interesting.

Really enjoyed this visit, and even found someone I knew in the Hall Of Fame. Signage telling you where everything is would make it a bit easier as there is so much to go through and a really large site.

When you arrive you have a choice of road transport or train... There is a separate admission for each. We chose train ... Big mistake. The place was dead. The museum was more like a ghan jumble of nick nacks from the old ghan. The whole museum was extremely tired and could do with some order... Which once it looked... More

I spent over 3 hours there and liked everything about this museum. The exhibits are a wonderful reminder of Australia's motorised past. A most for every motor vehicle enthusiast!

To see so many people who have been recognised for their contribution to the development of the Territory and the vehicles that they drove was great. Could have spent days at the museum.
