    • Canberra, ACT


    The BMW Car Club Canberra invites all BMW Club members to join us for the Nationals, March 11 - 14 2022 - deferred from 2021 due to COVID restrictions.

    Read the full event program here.

    The BMW Clubs Australia Nationals is a chance for members of BMW car clubs across Australia to meet up and enjoy each other's company and some great events. The Nationals are run every 2 years with a different State/Territory hosting the event each time.

    For many, Canberra is the home of politics. As locals know all too well, that isn’t all there is! It’s a well-kept secret that the Australian Capital Territory and the surrounding region is home to an array of great things, including fantastic driving roads!

    BMW Car Club Canberra have selected some of the best Canberra has to offer and designed a program with everybody in mind (Including the kids!). Whether you want to go on a spirited drive or to take a self-guided tour at your own pace there is something here for you. For the kids, there’ll be activities and more.

    There will be Motorsport for those that like life in the fast lane and some driver training for those that would like to get a more intimate understanding of their skills and abilities.

    Something not yet seen at the Nationals is any events that cater to those wanting to take the ‘roads less travelled’. BMWCCC are proud to be offering some a taste of the bush capital and inviting fellow off-road enthusiasts a look at the wild side. Not too wild, there’s no expectation for lift kits or winches on your X3, X5 or the like.

    The Gala dinner will be a night to remember as the National Museum of Australia welcomes us and showcases an eclectic collection of vehicles in the main hall of the museum.

    Lastly, it wouldn’t be a showcase of all things BMW without having some truly special members of the BMW Community. There’ll be some special guests appearing, stay tuned for updates as we count down to what is sure to be a fantastic event!

    We look forward to welcoming you to the Nation’s Capital in March 2022.

    - BMW Car Club Canberra

    Registrations will be available shortly.
