National Motoring Heritage Day
National Motoring Heritage Day is an initiative of Australian Historic Motoring Federation, with the aim being to promote and display Australia's strong motoring heritage and also show the community, business and government the strength of the Australian historic motoring movement.
The idea of National Motoring Heritage Day came about at the 2006 AHMF AGM, CACTMC raised this as National Motoring Day, stating, 'That the Australian Historic Motoring Federation give priority to organising a national motoring day whereby all car club members drive their vehicles around their own area - city, town, etc - to show the strength of the car movement in Australia.
At this meeting, 8th & 9th September 2016 it was decided it would be called National Motoring Heritage Day and it would be the 3rd Sunday in May annually.
These historic vehicles bring enjoyment to their owners as well as the public. Australia’s historic motoring movement has a massive input into the economy, with vast sums of money spent on restoration and maintenance of motor vehicles. There is also a vast economic benefit to businesses (e.g. motels, caravan parks, hotels, restaurants and service stations) in the towns and cities where events are hosted.
National Motoring Heritage Day is a day where the car owners share their passion with the public and other vehicle enthusiasts.
