Move among the kinds of vehicles that have shaped our way of life. You'll see some grand and gracious objects including the Catalina Flying boat in which Captain P G Taylor surveyed an air route between Sydney and Valparaiso, Chile, in 1951; the luxuriously appointed Governor's railway carriage of 1891; and a 1987 Toyota Supra, sectioned and powered to reveal its construction and operation.
See the vehicles that carry us from cradle to grave including a pram, a penny farthing bicycle, boats, a hearse, and many more.
