    About Us

The Historic Motor Cycle Club of Queensland (HMCCQ) is an enthusiasts' Club of more than 1200 members who take pride in keeping old motorcycles on the road. The Club was originally formed in September 1970 and now comprises the following 15 Areas across Queensland: Brisbane, Burnett, Childers, Dalby, Fraser Coast, Gladstone, Gympie, Ipswich, Kingaroy, Pine Rivers, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Tamborine Mountain, Toowoomba and Warwick; and a Subcommittee focused on the Indian marque.


The Club has thrived for almost 50 years, which in no small part has been due to the dedication of those members who have served on the Management Committee. The Honour Board of the those who have kept the Club functioning for all those years is available here.
