Munster’s new attraction

2018-02-22 06:00

LAID-BACK Munster now has a new tourism attraction to boast about.

Besides some lovely seaside homes and hospitality properties there is now the Munster Motor Museum.

Before the launch last week, I took a trip to the site and was shown around the property. In a nutshell, the collection of classic cars, motoring library and motor-racing memorabilia is really worth the gentle drive down to Munster. Rod, the owner, has plans to expand his collection in time and at times have “guest” displays of collectable vehicles.

He also has a collection of things maritime, which may well be of interest to curators at the Maritime Museum when it is formally launched in Port Shepstone.

His property overlooks a scenic lake and no doubt there will be some sort of outdoor hosting areas as well in the future.

Hats off to Rod and his team for their endeavours and may their attraction accelerate to success. What with the Dezzie South Coast Raceway at Oslo Beach and this new addition to our product mix, I have a good feel that motoring tourism may well become a bigger feature in our destination sell.

I believe that towards the end of the year, some 150 Porsche owners are coming for a visit and will be hosting some sort of public display as well.

It goes to show that car-owner organisations love to travel and pout their mechanical wonders, so where better than here on the South Coast.

With the South Coast Bike Fest at the end of April, we will encourage bikers to take rides out inland and up and down our lovely coastline.
