Motor vehicles have always played a key role in the physical, economic, and social development of Australia. We are dedicated to protecting this heritage through:

  1. Recording and cataloguing the heritage and history of the use of motor vehicles for transportation and mobility.
  2. Collecting, preserving, and exhibiting items of significance to this motoring heritage, for the benefit of the community.
  3. Fostering public awareness and interest, through developing seminars, programs, and publications to educate Australians in this heritage.
  4. Creating an educational resource for universities, TAFE colleges, schools, academics and historians; the Australian nucleus for the automotive and advertising industries, journalists, preservationists and inventive entrepreneurs; to be the focal point for Australia’s 780 car clubs and a centre for community engagement;

    We also intend to connect with and participate digitally with the many overseas foundations and heritage centres having similar objectives, such as the Daimler-Benz Classic Centre, the Brooklands Museum Trust, the Louwmann National Automotive Museum at The Hague, the National Centre for Automotive Documentation at Helmond, Belgium, the Blackhawk Museums, the Revs Institute, Florida, and the Nethercutt Collections in California, and others.
