The Victoria Bus and Truck Museum is a new museum that will be opened on September 19th, 2015. In preparation for our opening, we have launched this website to keep the Australian public aware of our opening times, and opening plans.
Over the past three years, we have raised a significant amount of funds that will allow us to acquire and safe-keep valuable pieces of history. We have thus far acquired Buses and Trucks dating from as far back as the 1940′s.

Our Managing Director, Graham Hill, will be launching a conference in Victoria at some point during October 2014. More details of this will come in the future. Please stay tuned to our website to keep up-to-date on the launch of the Victoria Bus and Truck Museum.
We are proud to announce that the 1959 GM Transit 1 will be the first bus to join the Victoria Bus and Truck Museum. This bus has a very long history, and has spanned numerous countries and carried tens of thousands of passengers. With some light refurbishment work undertaken, the GM Transit is fully operational and still drives smooth. However, the bus will no longer be in use as it will be added to our gallery for future viewings. This particular bus will also be on show during the conference held by Graham Hill in October 2014.
Please stay tuned as we update the website to showcase more of the buses and trucks that will be featured in our museum.
The image on the right shows one of our most valued possessions, a school bus dating back to the era of the 1930′s This school bus is no longer operational, and we are not choosing to refurbish the non-working parts. The outside exterior will be refurbished to bring the metals back to life and try to resemble what it would have looked like 85-years ago. This bus will not be on showcase during our 2014 conference as the refurbishment work may take several months. We will, however, have it ready on display for our 2015 launch.
