Overview

Hillsborough Holden Museum is a stunning new facility purposely built for the preservation and display of a private collection of Australian Holden cars and memorabilia. The cars range from well preserved early models, meticulously restored models through to late model new cars. There is also a mini putt golf course inspired by the famous Mount Panorama track at Bathurst. Cafe available.
