The southern hemisphere's largest collection of on display bikes, the Zion Hill bike museum, has opened for Bike Week.
A celebration of everything on two wheels, the museum is a throwback to the past with mini penny farthings, international bikes and the late Graham Austin's custom creations.
"Some go back into the early 1900s and there's every bike that was ever made or assembled in Tasmania, there's a collection of those and a lot of bikes that my father made," Merrilyn Billing, daughter of Graham Austin, said.
The museum opened for Bike Week, which is on from March 7 to 14, as a celebration of the annual event. After years of needing volunteers, the museum is now opened regularly on Tuesday from 10am to 2pm.

"It's like going back in time and everybody reminisces when they go in there and they see a bike that they used to ride... there's a lot of history in there," Ms Billing said.
The bicycle museum is at Zion Hill, Warring St, Ravenswood (the old high school).
