Transport and Main Roads Heritage Centre

Toowoomba, Toowoomba Area

The only road building museum in Australia, the Transport and Main Roads Heritage Centre offers an exclusive perspective of the history of road building in Queensland. Located opposite Toowoomba's airport terminal, the museum is open by appointment, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm.

Travel the winding road throughout this unique museum. The exhibits offer plenty of information about road planning, construction and maintenance for you to explore. Cartoon characters and interactive children's trail help teach kids about what has gone into making the 'black stuff' and if you love machinery, then you'll get a kick out of the fully maintained vehicles and road building equipment on display.

Showcasing the hard work and pioneering spirit which helped shape Queensland, the museum provides an opportunity to learn how the state's road network has been developed, from the conditions under which road workers laboured, to the modern plant and equipment you see on roads today.

Call now and ask for a guided tour through the museum and this distinctive piece of Queensland's history. You'll be surprised at what you discover.
