Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott’s bright red swimming trunks and cap will be put on display in an Alice Springs pub.
Mr Abbott made the outfit famous when he wore them in a race.
Avril Vaughn owns a pub in Alice Springs and bought the ensemble in an online charity auction for $3,400.
She said it was “a lot of money to get into someone’s pants” but it was for a good cause.
The money raised from the sale has gone to the Spastic Centre.
“Alice is full of fun-loving people and they I’m sure will see it for the bit of fun that it is, and a donation to a great cause,” she said.
But she has no great affection for the Liberal Party leader.
“No particular fascination, but I think for a 52-year-old man I thought he sports those Speedos pretty well.”
