This was the last day of our brief trip to Tasmania. We stayed the night in Launceston so we can be handy to the airport, hence we woke up reasonably early to pack our cases and put them in the boot of the car. At 9.00 we headed of to the Automobile Museum, located opposite City Park in Launceston.
The entry fee was $12(AU) per adult.
When you first enter there is a small floor area where they have special displays - when we went they had a show that had all the iconic Australian motor vehicles - Ford and Holden vehicles.
The museum has a great array of vintage and prestige car on show from all countries - Mustang, Chevy, Jaguar, Fiat, Ferrari, etc just to name a few.
There is also a mezzanine level that has a great display of various motorcycles, once again from all over the world, Harley, Indian, Honda, Triumph, etc. These were my favourites.
There is also a gift shop once you exit where they sell all sorts of vehicle memorabilia - car and motorbike scale models, key rings, licence plates, etc.
We spent a great 1-1 1/2 hours roaming around the museum, pointing out the cars and bikes we always wanted.
After we left the museum we had about 1 hour before we had to leave for the airport so we went across to the City Park Cafe. We had a yummy toasted Turkish bread sandwich each and a large cuppa coffee. The park also has a caged area which houses a troop of monkeys, there is also a large green house, a duck pond and a small train runs around the park paths giving children rides.
