The Australian Motorlife Museum
The Australian MOTORLIFE Museum is a not-for-profit volunteer organization with Authority to Fund Raise as a Tax Exempt Charity that began in the early 1990s with a group of veteran and Vintage motoring enthusiasts building the Illawarra Motor Museum with the sole purpose of showcasing the Veteran and Vintage cars to all Australian and international visitors.
With the inclusion of more exhibits, there was a need to expand so they moved into the new building with a new name to include “Motorlife” which was chosen from an early magazine publication so as to cover not only the main exhibits, the cars, motorcycles, and bicycles but also the technology that helped change the face of Australia during the late 1800s and so you will see a very wide range of exhibits from tools, gramophones, typewriters, scales, telephones and more, with a lot of the exhibits resorted by our volunteers or on loan from members and friends.
The museum houses: The Paul Butler Collection which is the accumulation of many years of collecting a wide range of cars and memorabilia; one person’s passion. The Wayne Gardner Collection of trophies and motorcycles. The NRMA Heritage display. And some fine examples of Australian motoring heritage.
