While you’re in the south, don’t miss Invercargill’s two world-class museums. One man’s passion started it all, and now Bill Richardson Transport World is the largest automotive museum of its type in the world. With more than 300 vintage vehicles (running the gamut from Henry Ford letter cars to Volkswagen Kombis to 1930s V8s and classic trucks of every make and model imaginable), a movie theatre, wearable arts, a LEGO room, and quirky themed bathrooms, here you’ll discover something for everyone. Visit transportworld.nz for more. Meanwhile, with everything from Brough Superior to Burt Munro, John Britten, and of course George Begg, Classic Motorcycle Mecca has it all. The Southern Hemisphere’s leading classic motorcycle museum is home to more than 300 bikes dating as far back as 1902. Housed in two restored historic buildings in the heart of Invercargill, the collection boasts displays of classic British, American, European and Japanese bikes alongside tributes to motocross and speedway.
