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.
