Proudly presented by the National Motor Museum – Birdwood.

The National Motor Museum presents another of its popular Outdoor Cinema screenings of classic Australian road movies in January, with one of the best feel-good Aussie comedies of the 90s, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. On the scenic grounds of the Museum on Australia Day-Eve, film-lovers can recline on picnic rugs underneath the stars, listen to an all Aussie playlist prior to the film, tuck into their picnic hampers or sample the local produce BBQ. Come sunset, they kick back and enjoy the much-loved road-movie classic.

In addition to the film screening, a showcase of Australia’s finest unique vintage caravans will be on the grounds accompanied by their owners who will open the doors on these classic kitsch creations for movie-goers to take a look inside their retro gems.

The Museum is encouraging people to bring blankets and rugs, or low lying chairs, and to camp out on the grounds and enjoy the ambience of this unique setting. There will also be a local produce BBQ, soft drinks and ice creams available. People are encouraged to bring their own picnic baskets and BYO alcohol and drinks are most welcome.

The movie ticket includes Museum entry and a rare glimpse of the collection at twilight.
