|MORRIS MINOR TOURING CLUB AUSTRALIA INCORPORATED
A short history
The Morris Minor Touring Club of Australia Inc. was formed in 1984 by a small group of people who wanted to go away for a cheap holiday within Australia. They had a burning desire to use their Morris Minors to travel somewhere different and away from the mainstream tourist destinations. The founderís also wanted to prove to the many disbelieverís that the Morris Minor was not just the little car built to do the shopping in but was capable of travelling longer distances over all types of roads. In other words that the carís designer intended over 50 years ago.
It is now history that the destination chosen was the historic township of Birdsville at the northern end of that most well known of the Australian outback treks, The Birdsville Track
We aim to foster friendship amongst all Morris Minor Car Clubs throughout Australia by inviting members from all Australian clubs to participate in the tour as arranged by the tour organiser.
