Attraction

Gilbert's Motor Museum

Fleurieu Peninsula

From $8.00
Gilbert’s Motor Museum is an initiative of the Strathalbyn Tourism Association, a non-profit group which is dedicated to promoting tourism in the area through events and sponsorship of local community groups.

The Museum is located within the historic building owned and used by the Gilbert family since the early 1900’s until the closing of Gilbert Motors in December 2018.

During that time Gilbert Motors manufactured Treblig bicycles and motorcycles, sold home appliances, motor vehicles including Buick and Holden and farm machinery and had vehicle repair and bodywork facilities.

Now vehicles on display include some of those sold new from the premises and veteran, vintage, classic and motor sports vehicles. Many of them are bound to bring back youthful memories to our visitors.

Of particular interest is the display of racing vehicles from Rowley Park Speedway, which is curated by the South Australian Vintage Speedcar Association.

Gilbert's Motor Museum strives to ensure the cars and items on display have a story that brings them to life and hopes the constantly changing exhibitions will touch everybody who visits Gilbert’s Motor Museum.
