Mt Gravatt ShowgroundsThe Volkswagen Drivers Club of Queensland was founded in 1982 to give the drivers and devotees of the rear-engine Volkswagen ‘Beetles’, Karman Ghia’s, Transporters and Kombis, together with the then ‘new’ front wheel drive Volkswagens, an opportunity to share their enthusiasm in mutual rewarding activities and to demonstrate to the public generally the goodwill and fellowship that these vehicles engender in their owners and drivers.
This is summarised in the original objectives of the club which are:
• To foster the good fellowship and further the interests of Volkswagen owners and drivers.
• To Promote the club
• To co-operate with other motor vehicle clubs.
Membership is now also open to owners of any Volkswagen Group Vehicles such as Audi, Porsche, Skoda, and Seat. Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti are also now in the VW Family.
Whichever Volkswagen or VW derivative you own or drive, as a member of the VWDCQ, you will be sure to meet people with an extensive knowledge of all types and be able to enjoy activities including friendly club fellowship and public road club runs and also opportunities for off-road activities such as circuit racing, hill climbs and rallies.
Club Membership can also offer those whose vehicles are only used irregularly access to reduced Qld Transport registration, subject to certain conditions. Club officials can advise on these requirements and the restrictions that accompany club registration.
All Volkswagen drivers are welcome to join our club and enjoy the club comradeship and family atmosphere that started with the Volkswagen ‘Beetle’ and continues with the ownership of the Volkswagen Group motor cars of today.
Club Meetings are held in the Memorial Hall, Mount Gravatt Showgrounds, 1644 Logan Road, Mount Gravatt on the 1st Wednesday of each month (excluding January) starting at 7.30 pm. In the grounds there are several car parks available close to the Hall. These are well lit in the evening and security cameras monitor the site.
Prospective new members and Visitors are welcome to attend these meetings.
