Brimbank could be home to Australia’s first and nationally significant Vietnamese museum.

About 32,000 residents of Vietnamese heritage, with a strong community and history live in Brimbank. Vietnamese Museum Australia has expressed interest in moving to Sunshine after withdrawing its contract with Maribyrnong Council.

A national visitor and cultural museum near Sunshine Station would:

  • add to a strong list of already committed investment in Sunshine
  • invite more investment
  • help establish a visitor economy.


We are proposing to sell a parcel of land at 119-125 Durham Road, Sunshine. Also known as Durham Road Car Park.

The parcel of land is 1,000 square metres. This is not the entire car park site which is approximately 2,750 square metres in total.

If approved it will be sold to Vietnamese Museum Australia. And can only be used for constructing a nationally significant cultural museum.
