Hi Peter. 
Regardless of the technical legality of picking up roadkill I do it regularly 
and NT museums have generally been the beneficiaries. I keep a 'roadkill kit' 
in my vehicle specifically for this- ziplock bags,latex gloves,sani-gel,a knife 
for beheading bigger specimens all in a zipup coles frozen food bag. When 
recording details the location is probably the most important thing- provenance 
is vital in curating specimen collections.  
If museums are not interested in you find then try your local park service-they 
sometimes need skulls etc for educational use.
