The largest private automotive museum of its type in the world

With more than 300 vintage vehicles, plenty of family fun, and ever-popular Invercargill café The Grille to discover, there is something for everyone at Bill Richardson Transport World.

One man’s passion started it all. What began in a humble back shed has been transformed into a truly spectacular family legacy. Entrepreneur Bill Richardson poured decades of dedication into restoring classic trucks – now, his family has infused his collection with their own interests to create a world-class experience that has become Invercargill’s leading visitor attraction. Boasting a collection including Henry Ford letter cars, 1930s V8s, Volkswagen Kombis, and vintage trucks of all makes and models including a showstopping 1940 Dodge Airflow Texaco tanker, Bill Richardson Transport World is a petrolhead’s heaven. With engaging children's zones, a movie theatre, wearable arts and more, here you can expect the unexpected.
