Today in Motorcycle History

Birdwood Mill

National Motor Museum
South Australia

The museum is situated in the Adelaide Hills less than an hour's drive from Adelaide. The collection includes around 100* motorcycles covering all periods of automotive history. Exhibits include the Douglas which speedway star Fay Taylor rode in Australia, the BMW ridden around the world by a another woman, and a veteran Minerva model built in 1904.

British motorcycles such as AJS and Royal Enfield are strongly represented, reflecting their dominance in this country. There are also many examples of European, American and early Japanese machines, along with a small selection of the many home-grown Australian marques.

* Exhibits often change and the motorcycles listed on this site may not currently be on display.
