Truck museum closer after $1M invested in Shepparton

Construction of a truck and transport museum in the northern Victorian town of Shepparton is getting closer.

Over $1 million in contributions from investors and partners has been raised for the project which is scheduled for construction later in the year, possibly as early as May.

As part of the Museum for Vehicle Evolution (MOVE), it was allocated $2.5 million in funding from the Federal Government in March last year as part of the Regional Jobs and Investment Packages scheme.

The Greater Shepparton City Council gave in-principle support to the project back in October 2017 as part of an ongoing showcase of the Goulburn Valley area as a major national transport hub and one of the nation’s leading food bowls.

Featuring an events hub, the Shepparton Truck and Transport Museum will include curated exhibitions, fixed displays and multimedia to showcase the rich heritage of trucking, transport and agriculture in the region.

The dedicated Museum and outdoor covered events space is expected to significantly bolster the region’s cultural tourism offering along with events capability.

MOVE has been projected to cost $6 million and will house trucks, cars, motorcycles and bicycles on the site of the Shepparton Motor Museum and Collectables.

“The project builds on the success of the Shepparton Motor Museum and Collectibles and will create 14 jobs during construction and 4 ongoing positions,” said Damian Drum Federal Member for Murray.
