  • Amazing experience that exceeded our expectations. Kids were equally as enthusiastic as the adults which was largely largely thanks to the volunteers who were very informative as well as welcoming...

  • This must be, the best, best-kept-secret in Australian automotive history! We invaded a-top fifteen, 1941 vintage-styled Royal Enfield Motorcycles and not a single one of our motoring pals and peers....  more

  • Today we had our minds blown by the interesting facts about our rich history of motor vehicles in Australia, from caravans, motorcycles, classic cars, race cars, petrol pumps and not just motor vehicles but lawn mowers, telephones, cameras, and gramophones. I can't reveal too much of the museum history you must have to go and visit it yourself. Thank you Trevor and the team of outstanding volunteers who keep this absolute gem of a museum going and sharing your time, wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm with us. Personally I learnt so much this visit and was truly taken back in the past of colourful nostalgia and how life was back in the day. Highly recommended anyone to come in an spend a whole day with these classics vehicles and the sensational team.
  • Great collection. Would have been nicer if someone didn't hang over our shoulder the whole time. It's a museum, we didn't ask for a tour guide. Didn't have the chance to read much about the cars because old mate was too busy talking and making us look at things. Not bad if you're looking for a tour guide though.
