Wonderful collection of unique vehicles and exhibits. Helpful staff and bright surroundings. Children were able to do a school age quiz and had there photo taken on Dennis the fire engine. They learnt so much about our Motoring History. Great activity for School Holidays!

This collection was advertised for sale a couple of years back with the passing of the original curator As a car collection it is not up to world standards in terms of the overall quality of cars

You should check your info, this collection was never put up for sale after the curator passed away, in fact part of it is now on loan from WA Museum and part is from other private individuals

It has a good collection of vintage cars and parts. It is worth spending a couple of hours or so which is all you need.

Thanks for your response, I just realised we had not commented. It is an ongoing process improving the visitor impact. Just a few days ago we added LED lighting and it really adds a sparkle to the lovely collection. cheers, John
