A charming country village that features the National Motorcycle Museum of Australia.
The village of Nabiac is situated on the Pacific Highway spine of the Barrington Coast. It has a pretty riverside location on the Wallamba River that flows into Wallis Lake downstream at Tuncurry, 25 km to the east. It's also an exit point off the Pacific Highway for Gloucester, simply follow the signs onto Wallanbah Road.
Nabiac means ‘place of the wild fig’ and is a charming township that houses a motorcycle museum, boutique shops, delicious cafes and a pub with serious country charm all within a short drive from the town centre.
The National Motorcycle Museum of Australia is a must see - and not only for motorbike enthusiasts! The museum is owned by the Kelleher family and plays host to over 700 motorcycles and huge range of memorabilia, toys and an extensive gift shop.
Nabiac is also home to some fantastic vintage shops for visitors to meander through and snap up bargain buys. There is something for everyone with wares including retro furniture, clothing, jewellery, knick-knacks and other unique gift ideas. Once the hunger has built up, the Greenhouse Café nearby offers delicious meals, suburb organic coffee and beautiful gardens to relax and take in the surroundings.
A trip to the local winery, Villa d’Esta Vineyard at nearby Dyers Crossing, is another popular experience. This scenic winery has almost 5 hectares of grapes under cultivation and the passionate Hungarian wine maker takes great pleasure in sharing his wines and explaining their traditional wine making techniques.
