At The Heart Of Our Community
We strive to be at the heart of our local community by providing a place for friends to meet, for families to relax and to host local functions and events.
We are the unofficial ‘clubhouse’ for a number of local sporting teams - a place to re-convene after matches, sell raffle tickets, celebrate victories and commiserate losses.

60's American Muscle Car Club
The 60's American Muscle Car Club, based in Melbourne Australia, is dedicated to the preservation and use of 2-door American Muscle Cars manufactured between 1955 and 1974.
The Club holds a variety of events throughout the year, including day cruises, social days or evenings, and monthly meetings. We also hold our Anniversary Run on the first weekend of every December, which takes in a two night stay in regional Victoria. Our very popular American Breed Car Show is also held annually at the Manhattan in Ringwood.
