Gippsland Vehicle Collection


The Gippsland Vehicle Collection provides south east Australia with an outstanding rotating display of interesting vehicles including cars, motor-bikes, machinery, historic vehicles and auto memorabilia.

Located in the very attractive Central Gippsland rural town of Maffra, the Motor Museum is an easy three hour drive from central Melbourne along the excellent Princes Highway. Or alternate routes can be taken around the coast, through the hills, or even over the big hill, Mount Hotham and the Alpine Way.

Maffra has long been a strong motoring centre and boasts a local hill climb track run by the Maffra and District Car Club and a Motocross track run by the Maffra Sale Motorcycle Club.

There are so many interesting and unique vehicles to see that we have a rotating theme of display vehicles for four months at a time. Their current feature displays are listed on the website. The vehicles are on loan from private collectors, mostly in Gippsland.

The massive building of around 2200 square metres was built during World War Two as a vegetable dehydrating plant to provide vegetables to our troops overseas, and has been several other factories and warehouses since then, finally falling into disrepair around 15 years ago.

Bus tours and school group are welcomed and catered for.

Valencia Creek: Travel Tips

Maffra Visitor Information Centre


The Maffra Visitor Information Centre serves this beautiful country town of approximately 5,300 people, situated 220 kilometres east of Melbourne in the Wellington Shire. It is the centre of the rich Macalister agricultural, pastoral and dairying irrigation area.

Situated on the Macalister River, this friendly town with its delightful tree-lined main street has a great deal to offer those who visit this area.

The Maffra Visitor Information Centre is housed in the late-Victorian designed Maffra Courthouse which retains most of its original features including the Baltic pine-lined ceiling and floorboards, the Magistrate's bench and marble fireplaces and all doors, doorways and interior woodwork.

In the specially designed display cases, you will see an important collection of mineral specimens, gemstones and fossils, the result of a lifetime of collection by Italian immigrant, Pino Deriu. Leaving Italy in 1952, this fully qualified accountant came to Australia and soon joined his brother in prospecting for opal around Coober Pedy. This led to a lifelong love of fossicking and trading minerals and gemstones. Apart from a wide and fully representative range of Australian specimens, his collection also contains extremely rare items from Europe, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Asia Minor. Pino's preference was to leave most of the specimens he collected in their natural state rather than have them cut, polished or mounted, which adds to the scientific value of this amazing collection.

Call the Maffra Visitor Information Centre and they can provide you with information to assist you in your travel through Maffra, the nearby Victorian high country and the surrounding Macalister irrigation district and to make your stay more enjoyable. The volunteers look forward to making your visit a memorable one.
