A convoy of vintage cars touring through Katherine this weekend is keeping the town's unique history alive and connecting people with the past.
"It takes very little time for people to forget what happens," National Trust chairperson Merriel Lawrie said.
"I won't be around much longer and our members are striding through their 90s."
Running for about 15 years, the Katherine Heritage Tour is making sure knowledge of what is here now and what was here in the past is carried on.
"We want people to know where important things happened, like the airstrip where Clyde Fenton would take off to see patients, as well as things that are not there anymore.
"Some people I talk to don't know that Katherine was bombed, where the old telegraph line is that crosses the Katherine River, or what people endured back when there were no roads and no air-con."
Five years ago, the tour was a small bus which would visit the historic places.
Fast forward to today, the tour is an opportunity for people to see history in one of the Motor Vehicle Enthusiast Club's classic cars.
Starting and ending at O'Keeffe House, the tour winds through Katherine's streets with a commentator who knows the history of the small town well.
"Katherine is a real frontier town, thousands of troops stationed here, we have a rich pastoral history, and we stand to lose that if we don't make an effort," Mrs Lawrie said.
"Seven or eight streets bear the names of the White Russians who came here to grow peanuts.
"The railway line wasn't linked to Alice Springs until a few years ago, and people still had to make the tough trip.
"We have wonderful stories, it is about passing them on."
