Southward Car Museum
Opened to the public in 1979, the massive Southward Car Museum has two showrooms displaying cars of all kinds, including a wide range of vintage vehicles by iconic car manufacturers, including Maserati, Porsche, Ferrari, and Bugatti. Many of the vehicles have their own stories, whether they were a gift to Hitler, a gangster’s ride riddled with bullets, or a DeLorean DMC-12 like the one in Back to the Future.
Beyond the cars, there’s Redhead, the boat that Sir Len drove at 101 mph (163 kph) in 1953, making it the first boat in Australasia to travel faster than 100 mph (161 kph). And the 14-acre (5.5-hectare) museum grounds, aka the Dell, offer a lovely pond, tranquil bushwalks, and ideal picnic spots.
