National Road Transport Hall of Fame

Alice Springs

If you fancy big trucks, the National Road Transport Hall of Fame has a fabulous collection, including the chassis of the first Kenworth to come off the production line in 1971 and a few ancient road trains. There are over 100 restored trucks and vintage cars, including many of the outback’s pioneering vehicles. Admission includes entry to the Kenworth Dealer Truck Museum and is valid for two days, so take your time.
