When we drove to Wanaka for about eight kilometers from noon, we were attracted by a classic car hanging high on the roadside. The experience above all the way told us that we wanted to stop and stop, and the surprise continued. We turned the car in and saw that it was a great museum - the Wanaka Nation Transport & Toy Museum. Located next to Wanaka Airport, this museum is the largest private collection in the Southern Hemisphere and a national transportation and toy museum. Mr. Gerald Rhodes, who lives in Christchurch, the largest city on the South Island of New Zealand, is the owner of the collection.
In order to complete one of my dreams, it took more than 50 years, from collecting harvesters, from my own cars and boats, to various toys, old projectors, record players, sewing machines, bulldozers, planes, cannons, Armored vehicles, etc., were included in the museum. It is all-inclusive and comprehensive.
Most of the collections are from the South Island of New Zealand and a small part is from the North Island. The variety of vehicles is almost all over the world, such as ambulances, fire engines, school buses, postal vehicles, trolleys, rickshaws and bicycles. The toy is also made of iron-aluminum, plastic, fabric, resin and wood.
