May-June 2017

The motoring holiday is an indelible part of Australian culture; for as long as we have owned cars, we have used them to explore the highways and back roads of our country. In this edition of Open Road, we bring you four unforgettable trips that take in everything from twisting alpine roads to endless reaches of outback highway.

We also bring you up-to-date crash test results from ANCAP, the latest news about the NRMA's acquisition of holiday parks around the country, and tips on buying a used Holden Commodore.


The Deniliquin Ute Muster is an iconic Australian event that has overshadowed everything else there is to do in this thriving country town. We pay a visit to discover its hidden attractions.

Mar/Apr 2017 Open Road

Open Road

The NRMA has been working alongside governments, businesses and drivers to make motoring easier and keeping people moving since 1920.

The NRMA has been providing a range of services, including our famous roadside assistance, for our members and bringing together motorists with our member-owned organisation. Part of how we do this is by giving back to our members, that's why we created The Open Road magazine more than 90 years ago.

Originally called Good Roads, the magazine launched in 1921 to inform members about the NRMA's activities, road safety, information about cars and campaigns to local governments.

Renamed The Open Road in 1927, the bi-monthly magazine still reflects these values today and continues to give back to the motoring community with car reviews, road rules and the work the NRMA has done campaigning for safer and better roads as well as better deals for motorists.

The Open Road also collates their best money saving offers for members, of which the numbers have grown since the magazine was first published, such as car servicing, car battery replacement, mobile mechanics and cheaper driving lessons. You can also download the NRMA Open Road Magazine app to read at your own leisure on your device.
