  • Terrific collection of cars and other vehicles, with good information panels. There's something of a bias towards Holdens, but this is SA! Good bakeries across the road when you've seen everything.

  • Beautifully restored and maintained vehicles and buildings. The young lass on the desk was friendly and helpful. This time we found The Mill, which is shown on a map but needs actual signage to find it...well worth the visit to learn the history of it. Lovely lawned areas and trees. Definitely recommend a trip through the beautiful hold to spend at least a couple of hours there. Lovely town as well.
  • A great place to whittle away a few hours. From kids activities, to video games and presentations, over-head displays, and rows of cars and bikes from over a century ago all the way to recent local production cars, this place has a lot to keep you entertained for hours on a self guided tour of the place.
