Less than 20 minutes outside of our nation's capital and just 10 minutes from the airport, you'll find Queanbeyan. This is a town full of history, rolling rural landscapes, local wine and produce and plenty of culture to enjoy. Perfectly placed to host the communities of the ACT and NSW Southern Tablelands, Queanbeyan is also nearby many regional communities who know just how bone-dry the drought can be, and can really benefit from the boost that tourism can bring.

Frequently asked questions

The NRMA is a bit different from most organisations. From the very beginning, we've been here to serve our Members, and everything we do is for them and the communities where they live, work and play. So it makes complete sense for us to to get out and share this milestone.

The basic details for all of our Bright Futures Queanbeyan event is as follows. As we draw closer, you can check back to this event page, or better yet register your interest for the event to stay up to date with all the latest details and information.

Whilst our centenary is a time to reflect on our history, we're also taking the opportunity to look at how we can help shape the bright futures that lay ahead. We're focussing on those in need, giving communities a platform to shine a light on the issues and challenges they face, and looking for ways that we can all help to build a better, brighter tomorrow.

Whether you catch a train, a bus, or road trip like us - we're working to make it as easy as possible for you to join us on the day. Check back to the event pages closer to the date as we share updated details.

By registering, you're simply helping us plan and prepare the best event possible for all involved. It will help with a number of things such as how many staff and volunteers we might need, how much food and beverage should be available, how best to manage safety and security and even things like how many toilets we might need.

It's free to register, you're not at all locked in to that date or event, and it also means we can keep you informed of the latest news and information as we get closer to the date of the event.

Not at all. Entry to all of our Bright Futures events is completely free. There will, however, be some tasty food and drinks available for purchase at each event.

The NRMA has always existed to serve both our Members, and the communities in which they live, work and play. As such, both Members and non-Members are a part of our story and reason for being, so all are welcome and encouraged to join us at these events. These are celebrations meant for everyone in our community to enjoy. So, if you or anyone you know not is not a Member, that's not a problem - we'd still love to see you all there and getting involved.
