The Mercedes-Benz Club of the ACT’s first ever “Family Fun Day” will take place from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm at the Federation Gardens in Queanbeyan (Waniassa/Molonglo Streets).

There will be activities for children, games such as boule and finska (never heard of finska? – come along and try it, great fun) for grown-ups and, because we’re a car club, some precision driving challenges. These will include car manoeuvring skills - slalom, tossing a ball into a bucket as you drive by and demonstrating your reversing skills by driving backwards into a simulated garage.

We will have a break during the festivities for a bring-your-own lunch; this could be a picnic or a barbecue as there are barbecues at hand - your choice. If you prefer to buy some food or if you have forgotten something, the Queanbeyan CBD and everything it offers is a short stroll away. For those who enjoy a coffee, there is a coffee shop close by. Federation Gardens has good facilities, great shade trees as well as open areas and the scenic Queanbeyan River is just across the road. Bring sunscreen and hats, your own tables and chairs or picnic blankets, food and drink and any games you may like to share.

We are pleased that you have found us and hope that you find our website interesting. If you are considering membership of the Club then this site will give you a wealth of information about the Club.

Formed in 1976, the Club welcomes new members who share the passion for the marque. It is not a requirement of membership to be the owner of a Mercedes-Benz, just an interest in the marque is sufficient.

We organise many motoring, social and technical events throughout the year and provide members with an invaluable resource for Mercedes-Benz related information Our major display day, the annual Concours d ’Elegance, is held during Canberra’s spring festival, Floriade. See our Concours page for full details.

Every second month we bring you an update of excerpts from the club’s magazine, STAR ACT, which is distributed to club members every two months. Of course, to get all the juicy news, you will need to refer to your own copy of this excellent publication.

In 2016 our club celebrated its 40th Anniversary, so we have a proud history of the club as well as being proud of our association with Mercedes-Benz, the world’s longest continuous car manufacturer. We have included a brief history of the club in our "About Us" page. The Club is an incorporated association and is an officially endorsed member of Mercedes-Benz Classic Management in Stuttgart, Germany which promotes and assists a community of over 70 Mercedes-Benz clubs around the world. We are also affiliated with the Council of ACT Motor Clubs.
