The Gippsland Vehicle Collection provides south east Australia with an outstanding rotating display of interesting vehicles including cars, motor-bikes, machinery, historic vehicles and auto memorabilia. The display now includes a magnificent collection of 3,400 pristine model cars.
Located in the very attractive Central Gippsland rural town of Maffra, the Motor Museum is an easy three hour drive from central Melbourne along the Princes Highway. Or an alternate route can be taken around the coast, through the hills, or even over the big hill, Mount Hotham and the Alpine Way.
Maffra has long been a strong motoring centre and boasts a local hill climb track run by the Maffra and District Car Club as well as a Motocross track. There are so many interesting and unique vehicles to see that there is a rotating theme of displaying vehicles for four months at a time.
The current feature displays are listed on the website. The vehicles are on loan from members and private collectors, mostly in Gippsland.
The massive building of around 2,200 square metres was built during World War Two as a vegetable dehydrating plant to provide vegetables to troops overseas.
Bus tours and school group are welcomed and catered for.
