    The museum at Muloorina is well worth seeing.Heaps of memorabillia there to purchase.

    The logistics those guys faced back then were something else, their personal facilities were spartan and the Muloorina homestead is a long way from the site where Donald Campbell actually ran the Bluebird.

    You can still drive out there and there are signposts and plaques recognising Donald Campbell.

    He was my hero.

    Great bit of history on film. We saw the Bluebird at the British Motor Museum last year, it's huge!
