Entrance: Please enter at the entrance to the American Muscle Car Museum on Sarno Road west of Wickham Road.
Up to 10 filled sandbags per vehicle will be provided to those with proof that they reside within the City limits of Melbourne.
- Not all homes need sandbags. If you are in a low-lying area that is prone to flooding, sandbags may be used to protect your home by placing them across doorways to prevent water from entering the building.
