Overview

The Brisbane Transport Museum, located at 600 Mains Road, Nathan, is home to the largest display of heritage buses and coaches in Queensland with a current fleet of vehicles spanning from 1938 to 1996 models. The majority of these buses operated for Brisbane City Council and form a significant part of Brisbane’s transport heritage.

The Museum possesses a large collection of rare photos and industry memorabilia that represent over a century of passenger transport history. The majority of these items have not previously been showcased to the public on a permanent basis.

The Museum also features a dedicated Brisbane City Council history display which covers the first buses in 1925 right through to the current state-of-the-art Brisbane Metro vehicles.
