The MX-5 Club of NSW is responsible for organising the next National Meeting (NatMeet) of the MX-5 Clubs of Australia in 2020. Not only will 2020 be the 30th Anniversary of the MX-5 Club of NSW, we will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Mazda. After previously hosting NatMeet in Canberra (1996 and 2012) and Blue Mountains (2004), we have chosen the Hunter Valley as our destination for 2020.

When?

Friday 17th April – Tuesday 21st April 2020
These dates align with the middle of the April school holidays in NSW, ACT, SA, TAS, WA (end on 26th April), and the end of school holidays in Queensland (end on 19th April).

The event starts on Friday 17th April 2020, giving interstate MX-5ers four days after Easter Monday to travel to the Hunter Valley.

The Venue

In a beautiful bushland setting overlooking the valley, Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club will be your home for four fabulous nights.

Cypress Lakes Resort offers luxurious accommodation for guests in multi-bedroom villas. All villas feature spacious lounge and dining rooms, bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, balconies with views across the resort's 18-hole championship golf course, nearby vineyards and the Brokenback mountain range.

  • One bedroom villas (1 bedroom, 1 bathroom) @ $266 per villa per night including breakfast for up to 2 guests per villa
  • Two bedroom villas (2 bedroom, 2 bathroom) @ $413 per villa per night including breakfast for up to 4 guests per villa
  • Three bedroom villas (3 bedroom, 2 bathroom) @ $510 per villa per night including breakfast for up to 6 guests per villa

Accommodation at the resort is not compulsory for the event, but is highly recommended. We are expecting up to 200 people to stay at the venue and have capacity for up to 250 at all other events.

Please note accommodation bookings are separate to NatMeet registrations and there will be a booking form made available when registrations go live. Accommodation bookings can only be made using the form that will be provided, so you can secure the best prices.
