What's On: Fox Classic Car Collection, Family Sundays at Icehouse, Harbour Walking Tour & The Good Food and Wine Festival

Fox Classic Car Collection
Head to the Docklands and view one of the largest Mercedes Benz car collections in the southern hemisphere.

The Fox Classic Car Collection includes more than 50 prestige vehicles collected over a 20 year period by trucking businessman Lindsay Fox. Experience the high life while wandering through rows of luxurious vehicles such as the Porsche Spyder made famous by James Dean and the Mercedes 300SL that Pablo Picasso, Juan Fangio and Ava Gardner once owned.

Marvel at the specifications of the high-powered engines of our performance vehicles and get a taste of life in the fast lane. The Sir Henry Royce Foundation Gallery (one of only three in the world) is also located in the Queen’s Warehouse. It features some significant Rolls Royce and Bentley vehicles.

The collection is situated in the historic Queen’s Warehouse in the Docklands precinct, amongst stunning water views and a variety of great restaurants. Why not head out for lunch afterwards? Find your favourite cuisine here.
