Ok, I will admit I may be just a little biased with DJR, having followed Dick Johnson through the production series into the V8 Supercars. He was an awesome driver, having won Bathurst and series. The museum gives you a glimpse into the history of...More

I visited this establishment out of curiosity. It is a little underwhelming and did not have the impact I was hoping for. If you are going a long way out of your way to visit DJRTP I think you will be disappointed.

Was lucky to actually meet Dick Johnson and have a photo taken with him. Awesome, as he has always been a hero to me. He is an inspiration having always shown that with determination you can get through the hard times.

Would not bother. Not a lot there and not one person spoke to us. Drove from Broadbeach and was excited to go the biggest let down ever. I was a DJ fan!!!
