  • We had a great time here! We caught the vintage bus from QVB Stand D to the front door of the museum. They run roughly every 30 minutes. The museum is not huge but there's enough to see to fill a couple of hours and $15 admission is quite reasonable, especially given the return trip to QVB on a vintage bus. Keep up the great work!
  • Lots of heritage busses that you can look around plus rides into Sydney. The volunteers know lots about the busses in the collection and have some great stories. This is a really nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday.
