This is a vast, extensive collection – let us entertain you for a couple of hours or the whole day.

The 15,000 sqm space includes several of Bill’s own personal sheds, which have been transformed and opened to the public, along with a modern purpose-built facility. Bill spent decades restoring old trucks, and his family have carried on the baton, adding pieces reflecting their own areas of interest to form a truly mind-blowing collection. The love that has been poured into restoring and displaying the bits and pieces is evident as soon as you enter and see Bill’s personal favourite, his beloved Texaco petrol tanker.

After your visit browse our gift shop, or enjoy a bite to eat in on-site café The Grille.
