In 1962 some enthusiastic Mini drivers in NSW formalized a tradition which is still very strong today: talking about their Minis. We are happy and proud to continue that tradition: at every opportunity groups of Mini and MINI drivers can be seen or heard sharing new and well-worn stories and information. The MCCNSW today boasts 700+ members and is one of the biggest car clubs in Australia

At Minis DownUnder 2021, held in 2022, a celebratory dinner proved to be a popular opportunity for Mini enthusiasts to share their stories and memories, so for the Mini Car Club 60th anniversary we’re doing it again!

Yes, we’re holding a birthday celebration for the Car Club and invite you all!

For $45.00 pp there will be good food, speakers (not too many!), a quiz and fun. Of course the bar will also be offering beverages of your choice. 

All MCCNSW members past and present are invited. 

Come along for dinner on Saturday night then stay locally to check out our Mini display at the All British Day, Kings School, Parramatta on Sunday 11th.

APRIL 5th 2022  *CONFIRMED*

City of Canada Bay Museum

Ever wondered where the iconic Aussie rotary mower, Victa, originated? Not by Mervyn Victor Richardson as you all thought. Mervyn Victor Richardson took “borrowing your neighbours lawn mower” to a whole new level when he laid eyes on the petrol-driven rotary mower designed by neighbour Lawrence Hall, a Marine Engineer, in November 1948. Hall invented it so he could easily mow his mother’s lawn & the grounds of the Cabarita Speedboat Club. Richardson was so impressed he gained permission to “borrow” the idea and went on to build & develop the Victa Mower, the Aussie icon which turned “grass into lawn” in 1952. Come along to the Museum & see the original Mowhall mower & the 128th Victa made. Also on exhibit is a scale model of the Mortlake Ferry, also Arnott’s & Bushell’s displays as they were companies in this area & a brass fireman’s helment made by Rider & Bell, a local company, manufactured from 1947 to 1965. As the Sydney Harbour Bridge has just had a 90th Birthday you might like to check out the story of 9 year old Lennie, who rode his horse, Ginger Mick, from Victoria to Sydney (and back) to see & take part in the opening of the Bridge Click here to download a printable  pdf Direction Map MEET: City Of Canada Bay Museum, 1 Bent St. Cnr.
