NATIONAL MOTORING HERITAGE DAY – Sunday May 16th 2021 Sunday 16th May 2021 is the 15th National Historic Motoring Heritage Day. This is a special day for all old car and 'bike fans, celebrated annually on the 3rd Sunday of May it is an initiative of the AUSTRALIAN HISTORIC MOTORING FEDERATION supported by heritage and historic motoring clubs throughout Australia. The day gives owners of all types of vintage, veteran and classic vehicles an opportunity to get out for a drive and meet other like-minded enthusiasts. Some go for long drives, some prefer a short local trip, some attend club gatherings in large numbers, others choose to go their own way. There are many suitable advertised destinations and this year the Australian Motorlife Museum at Kembla Grange NSW welcomes drivers and riders of all types of historic vehicles to our wonderful facility. We will have ample parking for all in and around the park surrounding the Museum, a sausage sizzle and refreshments available, and offer a special discounted admission to the Museum on the day: $12 adults, $6 kids aged 6 to 16. The Museum is situated just off the M1 south of Wollongong an hour and a half drive from Sydney and open from 9.30am. For directions and contact details and more on the story of the Museum and its contents see links on this page. See you there !Read More
