Great to see Burt Munroe being remembered. Nothing really special but worth a look if you have transport to get there.

This is a small statue to commemorate Burt Munro. It is located right in front of the Quuens Park. Stop by if you go near the park.

Really liked seeing the dedication to Burt Munro, being a motorcyclist and having a “need for speed” it was a goal to see this whilst in New Zealand. Very clean and tidy park and Burt is a legend.

Burt Munro is a Invercargill hero and what he achieved is well documented in Invercargill to the extent they hold a festival in his honour once year which attracts motorcyclists from around the world.

Hardly worth going here just to see the statue. If you are in the area then go into the nearby museum where you can read about Burt and what he did and achived. Then walk out and along the road past this monument.

If you are a fan of the movie "The World's Fastest Indian" like we are then you must look up this statute while in Invercargill. It is located near the front entrance to Queens Park.
