Welcome to the


The SYDNEY MODEL AUTO CLUB was formed over 30 years ago, by a group of model collectors. The aim of the club is to provide an informal and friendly meeting place for collectors to indulge their hobby. The club publishes a magazine covering club activities, model reviews and general articles relevant to our hobby. SYDNEY MODEL AUTO CLUB runs the largest regular monthly GRANVILLE TOY & HOBBY FAIR in Sydney. We can be contacted by e-mail at

Club meetings are held once a month, in addition to the GRANVILLE TOY & HOBBY FAIR. Each month members are invited to bring, for display, models relating to a suggested theme. The theme nights vary to cater for a wide variety of interests. Some nights we have over 200 models, of varying scales, on display. The club has an extensive library of books and periodicals, which can be borrowed by members, relating to models and autos generally.

The two pictures below were taken on a club night with "fuel companies" as the theme.

As the picture below shows, some models on display have no relation to the suggested theme for the night. This is just great, because some really interesting models turn up, like this Australian made Ferris Suburban train for example.
