A community based, volenteer organisation dedicated to the preservation and presentation of Australia’s road transport heritage and adding another interesting attraction to Winton’s thriving tourism industry.From its humble beginning with a small number of heritage trucks, it’s been full steam ahead at the Museum as the collection grows and so does the need for buildings.
Highlights of the collection are… 1899 Winton Pheaton (used to trial the first motorized mail run in Australia in 1910 and a 1890 Ruston Stationary Steam engine, Leyland Buffalo, 1934 Fargo, Model T Fords, Vintage Fire Engines plus many more vehicles shown in pristine condition. A new display in the Museum is ‘Toots’ M A N Truck. Toots was a female legend in the trucking industry.
