Road to Zero is a world first road safety education complex and has been developed by the TAC in partnership with the Melbourne Museum. 

Road to Zero draws upon decades of TAC research and pedagogical practice, and is co-created with practicing teachers. Part of the Victorian Government’s Towards Zero vision, it aims to reduce road trauma in pre-learner drivers by building knowledge and awareness that will empower young road users to make safe decisions.

An education visit to Road to Zero comprises two experiences: the Road to Zero Experience Space - an immersive and exploratory gallery showcasing the latest in multi-sensory interactive technologies, and curriculum-linked programs in the purpose-built Learning Studios.

Highlights from the Road to Zero Experience Space include a 3-minute virtual reality experience where students travel in a car from 1970 to 2055, an elevator simulation where students experience a dramatic ‘drop’ from the 11th floor of the Royal Exhibition Building, as well as a digital exploration of TAC’s well-known Graham sculpture. To learn more about the Experience Space please visit Road to Zero

Don't miss our upcoming teacher's preview night of Road to Zero on Tuesday 26 March.
