About AMRA

The Australian Model Railway Association (AMRA) is an organisation of modellers who are interested in model railways of all scales and gauges, from the smallest to the largest (12" to the foot). Members come from all Australian states and some from overseas. The aims and objectives of the Association are to foster interest in the hobby and to assist all those interested.

AMRA is an Australia-wide Incorporated Association which promotes contact and friendship between members by the activities of its various State Branches and Sub-Branches. The AMRA NSW Branch, also incorporated, is best known for its annual Model Railway Exhibition each October but at its clubrooms in Mortdale, it also holds regular meetings with running nights, model building competitions, modelling clinics and more.

Other AMRA Branches are located in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Keeping Members in Touch

Members of AMRA NSW and other interested subscribers keep up with events at the Clubrooms with Mortdale Matters, a regular email newsletter.

All members of AMRA receive a bi-monthly (six times per year) publication, Journal, which prints members' articles, letters, hints and tips, photographs etc as well as providing members' "for sale" and "wanted" classifieds free of charge. Journal is edited and printed by members of the AMRA Victorian Branch as a Print Post Approved publication.

This NSW Branch website is another medium by which the NSW Branch hopes to accomplish some of the aims and objectives of AMRA: namely, to publicise the club, fostering the continuance of the model railway hobby in Australia.
