Assembled over many years, this is an eclectic collection of motor vehicles made by a professional. The vehicles were chiefly mid twentieth century and included several with competition history as well as others with a unique South Australian connection. Fine collection of model cars too.

Visitors to Goolwa have a lot of options, with the river, Coorong and the ocean. But one well kept secret the Goolwa Motor Museum is a must do for anyone slightly interested in motor vehicles... There's something for everyone and the collection is amazing!!!
