The Illawarra Chapter had it's first gathering on 5th May 2012 at Cliffhanger Cafe, Bulli Tops after a brief run from Nan Tien Temple, and was formally ratified as a Chapter of the Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW on 13th June 2012.

The Illawarra Chapter will be celebrating it's 10th Anniversary this year with a special lunch at Cambewarra Estate in the Shoalhaven region.

  • We will start with a run from Haywards Bay to Cambewarra via Gerroa. Sadly, Barrengarry Mountain Road and Cambewarra Mountain Road are closed due to recent storm damage, so a drive via Kangaroo Valley is not possible.
  • A gourmet lunch of three courses will be served as alternate drop.
  • We will be seated in an airy function room overlooking the vineyard, with Cambewarra Mountain in the background. Stunning views!
  • The MX-5 Club will be subsidising the event by $20 per financial member. Lunch cost is $47 per member or $67 per non-member.
  • Maximum attendance is 80 people.
  • Bookings close 1st May
  • All members of the Illawarra Chapter will be presented with a commemorative metal badge, regardless of whether they attend the lunch or not.
