Great little museum, apparently largest private collection in private ownership in Oz. Frank is full of information and story's about the bikes. $8 admission gets you a free tea or coffee as well. A great stop if your a bike fan.

Some very interesting and rare bikes e.g.6 cyl & rotaries but only about 50 bikes. Worth a look if you're into bikes and have an hour to spare but don't expect heaps of bikes.
