See beyond the paint and chrome and relive the stories and experiences of Australia’s motoring history in the stunning Adelaide Hills.
You don’t have to be an enthusiast to appreciate Australia’s biggest motoring collection. It is a social history of the way we were, the way we are now and the way of the future.
Since 1965 millions of people have enjoyed discovering their motoring heritage at the National Motor Museum, the home of the Bay to Birdwood’s Finish Event.
The Museum’s spectacular climate-controlled pavilions provide the setting for over 300 historic cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles. There are also special displays of ‘star attractions’ – ranging from rare veteran and vintage cars to modern ground-breaking concept vehicles.
The exhibition Sunburnt Country – Icons of Australian Motoring provides an engaging journey into Australia’s first fifty years of motoring and features some of the Museum’s most important vehicles. These include the hand-built 1899 Shearer Steam Carriage, the 1908 Talbot and Tom Kruse’s 1936 Leyland Badger truck.
