The NRMA is turning 100 this year. It's a great time to reflect and celebrate our past, but more importantly we want to look into the future, so we can continue to help people move.
Our goal is to spark a movement towards a sustainable future for all communities, by revitalising the Aussie road trip and stimulating regional tourism.
Areas battling drought, fires, flood and now coronavirus (COVID-19) will need our help more than ever. When it's deemed safe to get out and explore, we encourage you to visit these places and stay, eat, drink and shop locally - it's what will lift us and the communities who need it most.
Bright Futures tour
Due to restrictions around coronavirus (COVID-19), we've had to cancel our remaining Bright Futures tour events. We hope that we'll be able to share these events with you at some stage in the future. In the meantime, stay updated by heading to the Bright Futures page.
We were fortunate to be able to share a Bright Futures event with the community in the Northern Rivers. The weekend included performances from Kasey Chambers and Richard Clapton, while kids were entertained by Bunny Racket, a range of arts and crafts, and the interactive floral field. Our collection of heritage vehicles made for a great photo opportunity, but perhaps the most popular attraction was Arlo the koala, who had people lined up to meet him.
Celebrating our evolution
Our centenary gives us the opportunity to look back and be proud of how far we've come, to share stories and engage with the people that have helped to shape the NRMA: our Members, our employees and the community.
Road trips matter
Since the rise of the automobile, road trips have been core to Australia's identity and a lifeline for many regional communities. Our desire for the freedom of the open road was what led to the birth of the NRMA 100 years ago.
While coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting our current way of life, our regional areas will need our support once we're advised that it's safe to travel again. We believe road trips are good for Australians, and our centenary is the perfect time to spark a movement towards visiting these areas.
