The Strathalbyn Tourism Association (a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation) exists to bring visitors to Strathalbyn and to showcase the best Strathalbyn and its surrounds have to offer.  Gilbert’s Motor Museum is a major part of that – a place with a huge history, put back to work as a destination for motoring enthusiast, families, car clubs and community groups.

The Museum could not operate without the support and commitment of the volunteers who give freely of their time and the generosity of our sponsors.

Gilberts Motor Museum


Nothing would happen without our volunteers.  We could not keep the cars spotless and the displays evolving or offer our visitors a warm welcome.  Our volunteers help make Gilbert’s Motor Museum one of the best – it’s that simple.

If you would like to lend your skills and support by becoming a volunteer please contact the Museum.  We’d love to hear from you.


Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted and used to help fund the on-going development of the Museum.

We also accept donations of motoring memorabilia and associated collectables.

If you would like to donate money or suitable items please speak to us when you visit or call 0408 158 230.


Corporate sponsorships are gratefully accepted and there are many ways your business can contribute towards the continuing success of the Museum.

Please phone 0408 158 230 for further details.
