Exhibiting iconic and landmark cars spanning almost a century of automotive technology and design.
The Car Museum is housed
in Melbourne's former customs building, located in Docklands.
This historic building was also the government printer in the early 1900's and produced Australia's first stamps.
Every display has its unique history - Actor James Dean was driving a Porsche 550 Spyder in California when he was involved in a head-on collision.
On display is one of the
most complete collections
of Ferrari in Australia.
Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, the company manufactured race
cars before moving
into production vehicles
The Mercedes-Benz 300SL was the fastest production car of its day. Introduced in 1954 as a two-seat sports car with distinctive gull-wing doors.
The Fox Classic Car Collection includes more than 50 prestige vehicles collected over a 30 year period by Lindsay Fox. The collection includes Bentley, Ferrari, Jaguar, Porsche and Mercedes Benz marques. It is ideally situated in the historic Queen’s Warehouse in Melbourne's new and exciting Docklands precinct. The building itself has an interesting history being a former customs building and tenanted by the government printer in the early 1900’s.
This distinctive setting is perfect for corporate events including cocktail parties, sit down events, presentation or smaller intimate dinners. The venue offers a point of difference from a conventional function room as well as providing an opportunity to create a different atmosphere. It is a venue that sets the tone for an exclusive and memorable event.
The Collection has been in the forefront of car restoration for many years under the stewardship of Brian Tanti, who is one of the most respected auto restorers in the country.
