A unique world-class experience Transport World is reputedly the largest private collection of its type in the world. Housed within two locations, Transport World attractions are a mixture of trucks, classic cars, motorcycles and motorcycle-related artwork from around the world. Outside of our vehicles you will find a unique mix of activities for families, females and non-enthusiasts. Don't worry if you're not passionate about wheels - our attractions have been designed to have something for everyone.

Bill Richardson Transport World
At Bill Richardson Transport World, our truck and classic car paradise, you will find a truly magnificent space covering over 15,000sqm. Our exquisite 'sheds' hold over 300 vehicles including retro Kombis, Henry Ford Letter Cars, Model Ts, stunning 1930s V8s and over 200 vintage petrol bowsers. Outside of this extensive range you will find a growing wearable arts collection, movie theatre, children's play zones and themed bathrooms fast becoming as famous as our vehicles. The scale of the collection is sure to impress so allow plenty of time. If tasting the delicacies of the south is more your thing head to our on-site café, The Grille - a delicious southern stop popular with locals and visitors alike.

Classic Motorcycle Mecca
Our second attraction, Classic Motorcycle Mecca, is due to open in November 2016 and will be housed within a revamped stand-alone premise within Invercargill's CBD. Previously located in Nelson and known as NZ Classic Motorcycles, the entire collection has moved south. Home to just under 300 motorbikes and motorbike-related artwork, it is widely regarded to be a world-class display. The collection will house solo, sidecar and even three-wheeled automobiles and machinery from 1902 upwards. Over 60 manufacturers are represented (with some really astounding restorations) including a 1902 Peugeot motorcycle to a 21st Century Simms Corbin Custom and includes brands such as AJS, Ariel, BMW, Brough Superior, Harley Davidson, Henderson, Indian, Matchless, Rudge as well as little-known brands such as the Schwinn and Zundapp. Again we recommend allowing plenty of time.
