The Queensland Transport Museum is located inside the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre.

The Queensland Transport Museum features a magnificent display of various forms of transport of various ages and a display of over 200 models that explore the creations, founders and functions of the Transport Industry.

The Western Transport Exhibit at the Queensland Transport Museum in Gatton Queensland is not only a tribute to J.C. (Cyril) Anderson and his brother M.J.R. (Curly) Anderson, but also to the men and women who worked for this great company. The part these 'pioneering' men and women played in opening up the regional towns of Queensland and Australia should not be under estimated. Western Oilfields Trucking helped open up the oil and gas fields of Australia at a time when roads and certainly highways did not exist. When it rained on the black soil plains west of Toowoomba drivers had no option but to either sit and wait for the roads to dry, or to unload their loads and dig their trucks out of bog holes.
