Club since 1955

The Riley Motor Club of Australia was started in 1955, and well over 60 years later is still motoring along. Anyone with an interest in Rileys can join the Club. Click here to download an application form.  

The photo above shows a few of our prewar Rileys, lined up to take Riley enthusiasts for a tour.

Visitors are always welcome and we usually meet on the first Tuesday of the month (But check first). Fine food is consumed, drinks are enjoyed and yes, there is even talk about Rileys. A bi-monthly magazine is posted out, as long as the Editor has enough interesting material. Of course, anything to do with Rileys is interesting, so send him something...  

An elected mixed management committee works on your behalf. The committee meets formally on the third Tuesday each month. The President usually chairs this meeting and minutes are kept.   The Riley Gazette is the source of Riley lore for our members, but sometimes takes the road less traveled.

You'd be right when you say there is not much news on new Rileys. The occasional false announcements out of BMW who own the marque aside, we really don't expect a new model. Modern legislation means the character of our cars can't be built today.

The thrill of driving a REAL car, cornering with drama and all the attractions of old cars is gone. They don't even leak oil satisfactorily.



The committee is an experienced voluntary group, elected annually by members.

Some of them have yet to use email on a regular basis (Too busy, one of those passing fads like having starter buttons inside a car instead of a crank handle..)
