Every two years, the MX-5 Clubs from every state of Australia get together for a national gathering called NatMeet.
Held over Easter, NatMeet brings together owners from all around Australia in the one place to talk, have fun and show off their pride-and-joy. The event program combines a day of motorsport with other events like funkhanas, navigation rallies, treasurehunts and convoy driving with a concours d’elegance and a good deal of social activity over the four days.
These gatherings were born at a meeting of all State MX-5 Club presidents at Daylesford, Victoria, in July, 1993. They kicked off in Adelaide in 1994, followed by:
• 1996 – NSW
• 1999 – Queensland
• 2000 – Victoria (Ballarat & Melbourne)
• 2002 – South Australia (Clare Valley)
• 2004 – NSW (Leura, Blue Mountains)
• 2006 – Queensland (Kooralbyn)
• 2008 – Victoria (Beechworth)
• 2010 – South Australia (McLaren Vale)
NatMeet 2012 was hosted by the Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW, and was held in Canberra over Easter 2012.
