Contact Rochester Sports Museum

Rochester Sports Museum is located Rochester - Central Victoria. The museum’s intriguing collection includes everything from Test cricketer Adam Gilchrist’s wicket-keeping gloves and one of golfer Greg “The Shark” Norman’s iconic hats, to a tennis dress worn by champion Martina Navratilova at the Australian Open and potato farmer-turned marathon runner Cliff Young’s tracksuit. Among the more than 4,000 exhibits are a blazer worn by Herb Elliott at the Cardiff Commonwealth Games which marked the start of a freak run in which he smashed the four-minute mile barrier 17 times, one of Dennis Lillee’s controversial aluminium cricket bats, a signed photograph of Mark Taylor from when he scored a world record 334 not out in Pakistan, a tracksuit worn by Soviet Olympian Sergey Bubka who broke the world record for men's pole vault 35 times and hundreds more. Located at the Rochester Railway Station, the Rochester Sports Museum is a must see during your visit to Rochester. Group visits by clubs, organisations and schools are welcome and special meal packages can be arranged. The museum is accessible by train, bus or car. Ample car parking available.
