We will attend the National Motoring Heritage Day Car Show 2024 at the Berry Showground on Sunday 19th May. This is the largest Display in NSW, hosted by the Shoalhaven Historic Vehicle Club.  The event is supported by the Council Of Motor Clubs NSW (CMC).

All owners of Vintage, Historic and Classic vehicles of all years and marques and special interest are invited to attend. Recent displays have exceeded over 500 vehicles. The day starts from 7am and concludes between 2-3pm. Judging of vehicles will take place between 9am and 12 noon. 

PMEA Members wishing to enter their vehicle do not need to pre-register. PMEA has secured 25 places to display our vehicles together.

For those members that do not wish to attend the Berry Show all day, an alternative suggestion is to visit from Nowra the nearby 'Fleet Air Arm Museum'.
