  • Make plenty of time to see everything as there's a lot to see and read, I also camped out the back, its not 5 star but its cheap and that's what I was looking for.

  • The museum is great, I thought I'd spend a couple of hours there but ending spending the day. The campground really needs a fair bit of work to bring it up to an acceptable standard but considering...

  • Worth a visit for all sorts of reasons. Great for kids, or kids at heart. There are many giant trucks in mint condition, beautiful cars restored to pristine condition. A walk through the old Ghan train. So much to see and learn
  • An eclectic mix of displays: various historical vehicles especially early Cars (ford, Buick, and others) a range of engines and trucks (including interesting makes and owners) and galleries with historical extracts, displays and many great vehicle models - and that's just the first building. Also there is an old Ghan train, impressive kitchen carriage and more, plus a Cafe. Well worth a visit - allow 2 hours or more.
