Had a great couple of hours with my parents from the UK and my kids (my 3 year old is obsessed with trucks etc) Well worth a visit, staff very friendly too. Take care if you sit in the trucks, my 7 year old climbed into a cab and shut the door, only to sit on a cat who freaked... More

Lovely place, with great history behind it, a testament to the early dwellers and their ingenuity. Lovely staff. What really trilled me was the old luxury cars, Dodge roadster made in 1928, Roll Royce of 1923, Ford designed in 1926. Its beautiful. Let me not kill the element of surprise and allow you experience it for yourself. Its a must... More

Having been involved in the Road Transport Industry for the past 51 years(and still driving for a living) I found myself being reminded of just how old I actually am with many of the trucks on display being makes and models I have driven for a living. When I saw the cab-over Dodge prime mover I recalled seeing it operate... More

Mid-November saw us enjoying a fabulous bouquet BBQ in the Kenworth Hall of Alice Springs Road Transport Hall of Fame. Succulent beef, snags, home made patties and scrumptious veges served up by wonderful volunteers who come to the Centre every year to share their lives in this wonderful setting. Compatriots from the Top End who had not previously experienced this... More

Went there with my 10 year old grandson and spent hours looking at all the cars and trucks. He had a great time and loved reading everything about the items on display. Well worth a visit.

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
