Brayshaw Park

Communities

There are a number of communities located at Brayshaw Heritage Park. Some of these communities include:

Vintage Car Club of New Zealand (Marlborough Branch)

This museum is built in the style of an early garage and displays a number of vintage cars and motorcycles plus lots of motoring memorabilia. The majority of vehicles are privately owned and have been faithfully restored to original condition. On a weekend or holiday you will see our cars leaving the Park to participate in the many and varied Club activities.
Museum open every Wednesday and Sunday from 1.30 - 4.00 pm.

Marlborough Associated Modellers

Marlborough Associated Modellers operate model cars, boats and trains. An extensive two-track rail system meanders through their gardens, replicating in miniature the sights and sounds of classic steam and diesel from days past.
The trains are full working models and operate for riders on the first and third Sunday of every month.

This museum houses the largest display of vintage farm machinery in the Southern Hemisphere with some very rare tractors, engines, and machinery. Over 80 different tractors are on display including a 1910 Blackstone, the only known one in existence.

Other displays include graders, wagons, ploughs, mowers, gigs, stationary engines, thrashing mills, chaffcutters, haybalers, and many other examples.
Open daily from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm or by arrangement.
