Sunburnt Country: Icons of Australian Motoring

Permanent exhibition

Sunburnt Country honours Australia’s iconic vehicles, legendary people, motoring innovation and adventurous journeys. From the novelty of a horseless carriage in 1899 to the 1948 release of ‘Australia’s Own Car’ – the Holden, Sunburnt Country celebrates Australia’s unique love affair with all things motoring. See the vehicles that first conquered Australia’s rugged landscape and vast distances and have kept those in isolated regions in touch with the rest of the world. Australians have embraced motoring as a fundamental part of our lives, and for many, it is an obsession.
