Hi All

Just a note to let you know this site is under development

and some of it will be missing or unfinished

The Classic & Historic Automobile Club of Riviera Lakes

The CHAC-RL Club was formed in 1989 and Incorporated in 2002.

Our Club was convened by a small group of East Gippsland Classic Vehicle enthusiasts to foster an interest in owning, restoring, and enjoying the use of Classic and Historic Vehicles. The main objective of forming such a Club was to build and maintain an organisation of like minded individuals who would join in meetings, social outings and events in a friendly atmosphere.

This formula has worked very well over the 28 years since the Club was formed and most of the 150+ individual members in our club are not only fellow members but also close friends.

Members of the public who may be gaining an interest in Classic or Historic Vehicles or newcomers retiring to our area, who may already have an interest, or would like to be involved in this great hobby, will be made most welcome by the members of the CHAC-RL.

OUR MONTHLY Club Meetings are held at Johnsonville in the Public Hall on the 1st Tuesday of every calendar month except for January.

  Our meetings starts at 7.30pm but we encourage all our members to arrive around 7.00 pm so that they can browse our business table, looking at upcoming Events etc. After the Meeting is held.  Supper is served

CHAC-RL has a very active calendar of events, which include a monthly “Coffee Cruise”, Monthly Outings and Events and Extended Tours.  Rocker Cover Races on our specially built track are very popular and involve the whole family.

 Our monthly Club Meetings are held in the “Johnsonville Hall”  

at 7:30 pm on the 1st Tuesday of the calendar month.
