Cool Cats, Warbirds And Industrial Desire

It is all about eye-catching style and revolutionary engineering at the Transport and Main Roads Heritage Centre. Saturday’s open day marks the last opportunity to view the international exhibition Industrial Desire: Detroit Concept Cars.

Karen Barrett preparing the exhibits for this weekend.

The exhibition is a unique opportunity to sneak a peek at the highly secretive and competitive world of car design. With less than a few thousand car designers globally, it counts as one of the world’s most competitive and secretive careers. Open from 10am to 2pm, Saturday – This is  your last chance to view this international exhibition.

Contrasting with these dream machines of the future is the attention-grabbing style of the Jaguar Drivers Club of Queensland and the practical revolutionary designs of machinery from Highfields Pioneer Village … A short distance away, visitors can be amazed at the spirit and missions of the Zuccoli aircraft collection on display in the airport precinct.

After seeing these exciting displays, take the opportunity to talk with like-minded enthusiasts over a BBQ hosted by Rotary Club of Toowoomba City.

Located near the airport terminal on Mutze Street, the Transport and Main Roads Centre is a hidden gem.. It showcases an engaging representation of the skill and dedication that goes into connecting Queensland from early pioneering days to current road-building technologies.
