Whether you are a revhead, antique lover or admirer of all things well made to do with motor vehicles, you will love Shepparton Motor Museum.

Lovingly restored cars caravans and motorbikes are all on display in beautiful settings.
Fun old fashioned camping

Opened in 2011, the national standard collection of vintage and classic cars and all things motoring will interest everyone.

I must admit I don't know a great deal about cars or bikes, but even I was able to appreciate the fine detail and excellent care that has gone into the restoration of these vehicles.
Beautifully restored jaguars

I loved the old bikes and in the gleaming car with beautiful red seats that looked like something taken directly from a movie screen filmed around the glamorous 1920s (if these cars were around this early).
Just like a movie

I also loved the memories of the funny old Combi vans brought back from my childhood and the ancient caravans decked out, complete with women that looked like they had stepped out of a Tupperware brochure.

My husband on the other hand was absolutely enthralled and delighted by what he saw, exiting the museum he was heard exclaiming comments like "wow that is amazing" and "awesome job, you should be congratulated".

He was delighted and amazed to realise that it was a new venture and all of these pieces had been located and beautifully taken care of.


The children whilst not necessarily appreciating the care and our age of the vehicle certainly were thrilled by the shininess and the appearance of cars and bikes they had only ever seen the likes of in movies.
Gorgeous pedal cars for the little ones
