It's only about a short 15-20 minute drive to Nabiac from Forster, we were the first people to visit the museum which was about 9:30am, the lights were still out when we walked in. The owner Brian and Margaret Kelleher were fantastic people to talk with, very friendly with some great local advice as well. The cost of admission was pretty good too at only $12 to see over 800 bikes. Well worth it in my books. This is the largest motorcycle museum in Australia.
|Wow look at all these bikes Dad.|

They had Tex's Hayabusa here, from Tex & Bundy fame. Click the link to check out their website. Bundy is the blue Heeler that has travelled over 600,000 km's on Tex's bikes all for charity and a great amount of fun thrown in. The girls loved the bike with the puppy on it.
The shear number of bikes here is overwhelming. I would have never expected to see so many in a small town like Nabiac. They have motorcycle toys and memorabilia scattered throughout the museum. They even have a pair of leathers from famous Aussie 500cc GP racer Garry McCoy.
It was also somewhere around here that little miss 6 realised we weren't going to the beach and every 30 seconds began to ask can we go now, repeat ad nauseum....for the next hour.
Best to come here without any kids in tow if you want a peaceful visit.
|So many bikes there stacked to the roof|
dry lake racers Australia.
|The Ducati section|
|Even more bikes|
|Classic RC30 and Fireblade|
After about an hour of ear bleeding kids whining I had seen about all of the bikes. What a fantastic display of motorcycles from historic racers and street bikes, speed way bikes. I highly recommend stopping in to have a look around if your in the area and can spare an extra hour or so. Oh, and if anyone was wondering I took the girls to the beach after we left the museum, I'm not that much of a bastard.
