Emergency vehicle lover need to visit this shed full of ambulances in Bayswater. The Ambulance Victoria Museum is definitely something you have to see. It is home to a collection of emergency vehicles and every conceivable piece of paramedic memorabilia to match.

The Museum currently displays 17 vintage ambulances dating from 1916, which are complemented by a large range of interesting memorabilia including a circa 1887 “Ashford Litter” man-pushed ambulance, vintage radio and medical equipment and information.

It is a non-profit organisation and is a unique and valuable heritage asset for the people of Victoria and indeed for all throughout Australia who cherish our national history.
