From its humble beginning, with a small number of heritage trucks, our community based volunteer organisation has dedicated itself to the preservation and presentation of Australia’s road transport heritage. Throughout the years, our collection has grown significantly, expanding into extra buildings and infrastructure. Walk through rows of expertly preserved heritage trucks and learn about the evolution of these fantastic machines.
