are motor museums all over Australia, from the familiar, like the National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama, to the relatively unknown, like the Vickers Holden Museum in Furnissdale, WA.
Around 60 of these museums have now formed the Australasian Motor Museums Association to promote their common interest in preserving motor vehicles for public display. Information and contact details at australasianmotormuseums.com.au
Alternatively, phone (03) 5145 1427 for a printed brochure.
Opening times are listed online when applicable. Some of the smaller museums are open by appointment only. If you are driving through, its best to book a few days in advance.
All sorts of gems are preserved around the nation, such as the ex-Bob Morris A9X that reader Wayne Owens just happened to contact us about (see Muscle Mail) as we put this piece together.
It’s not just cars on display. Listed is the Tractor Museum of WA, the National Road Transport Hall of Fame in Alice Springs, the RACV Heritage Museum in Noble Park, Melbourne and the Bicheno Motorcycle Museum in Tasmania.
