ATTENTION: CONVID-19 Cancellations

In light of the current escalating CONVID-19 situation, we have decided to cancel all club meetings, club runs & club events (activities) between now and the end of May 2020.

We will reassess the situation at that time, to see whether to then extend the activities shutdown timeframe, or to relax or alter it.

The Club Committee believe this is a necessary action at this troubling time.

Club Members are advised to keep an eye on the club website for communications updates to members in this time period. Those members on the club Facebook page, can also watch for communications updates on that platform too.

Club History

The first meeting of the reformed Monaro Club of Queensland Inc. was held in Beenleigh on the 18th June 1986 at the house of Derek Birch.

The first Club Committee comprised of: President, Chuck Peters; Vice President, Derek Birch; Secretary’s, Nerrine Birch and Michelle Carpenter; Treasurer, David Seabrook and Public Relations, Steven Carpenter and Rick Smith. Subsequent meetings were held at the Beenleigh Rum Distillery.

President’s since then have been: Craig Keene, Carole Peters, Graham Curtis, Jodie Curtis, Rebekka Napper, Mick Gourley, Darryl Lonergan and Terry Post. Lindsay Webster was the Club's first Gold Coast coordinator and Derek Birch the original Editor of the Club newsletter.

September 2010 saw a milestone for the Club - organising and hosting the first Monaro Nationals to be held in Queensland. Over 250 Monaro models and their dedicated owners travelled from all over the nation, meeting for a successful, multi-day event in Warwick on the southern Darling Downs.

In June 2016, the Club celebrated its 30th Anniversary, the longevity of the Club is testament to the passion and dedication of Club Members, and the enduring popularity of the Holden Monaro.

Over the years the Club has collected an extensive library of approximately 10 photograph albums, these albums can been be viewed at the Club meetings held on the second Wednesday of each month.

Cruzetime

The very first Cruzetime event was held on the 4th of April 1987, in the Coles car park at Arndale Shopping Centre in Springwood.

Over the ensuing years entrant numbers increased, Cruzetime 2001 hosted incredible numbers compared to the 1987 event, a massive fleet of approximately 1800 cars of all makes and models.
