Gippsland Vehicle Collection

03 5147 3223

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.

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 excellent Princes Highway. Or alternate routes 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 and a Motocross track run by the Maffra Sale Motorcycle Club.

There are so many interesting and unique vehicles to see that we have a rotating theme of display vehicles for four months at a time. Their current feature displays are listed on the website. The vehicles are on loan from private collectors, mostly in Gippsland.

The massive building of around 2200 square metres was built during World War Two as a vegetable dehydrating plant to provide vegetables to our troops overseas, and has been several other factories and warehouses since then, finally falling into disrepair around 15 years ago.

Bus tours and school group are welcomed and catered for.
