The CHMC holds -

  • The CHMC Annual Rally, usually held over the Easter long weekend, or for 4 days in April or May, and hosted by a different CHMC Affiliated Club each year. This event is open to all heritage and historic vehicles 30 years and older and entered by a member of an Affiliated Club or to members of clubs to which the CHMC extends invitations. This event has been run annually since 1971 and is widely known as "The Easter Rally" (though sometimes host Clubs may hold the Annual Rally at another date).  The Annual Rallies bring 100-200 heritage and historic vehicles and 300-500 people into regional centres and surrounding areas for 4 days of touring, displays and socialising. It has been estimated that the CHMC Annual Rally generates several hundred thousand dollars for regional economies though accommodation, catering, supplies and tourism. 
  • CHMC Meetings. The CHMC Annual General Meeting  is held in conjunction with the Annual Rally and attended by delegates and observers from each of the Council's affiliated clubs.  A CHMC General Meeting or half-yearly meeting is held annually in October and hosted in turn by an Affiliated Club.

Club Events

Council's member clubs hold regular motoring, display and social events in their own local areas, further information on these local events should be directed to the relevant local CHMC club/s. Events organised by our Affiliated Clubs as well as other relevant historic motoring events are advertised on the Events Page.

National Motoring Heritage Day

Council supports through its member clubs National Motoring Heritage Day, an initiative of the AUSTRALIAN HISTORIC MOTORING FEDERATION National Motoring Heritage Day is held annually on the 3rd Sunday in May and is supported by heritage and historic motoring clubs throughout Australia. Thousands of vehicles from the oldest veterans to the youngest collectable (30 years old) cars, trucks, buses, motorbikes, ex-military vehicles and tractors get out and about promoting Australia's motoring heritage to the wider community, and showing business and government the strength of the Australian heritage and historic motoring movement.
