The All British Day is an annual display day and picnic for enthusiastic vehicle Club Members to meet and show off their British motor vehicles. It is held in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, on the second Sunday of February each year. Open to the public from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm

  British vehicles have been used in Australia almost since the birth of the British motor industry. They have helped open up this vast country, and been depended on to help build some of Australia's biggest projects, like the Snowy Hydro Scheme. From the humble push bikes used to deliver the post, to police motorcycles, trucks, tractors, vans, utilities, company cars, and military vehicles. There are many British marques that can lay claim to being to being 'British Working Wheels!'

We look forward to hosting British Working Wheels in 2022.

2022..........60 years ago a breathtaking sports car  was launched at the Geneva Motor Show. The ground breaking E Type Jaguar was launched in 1961 and was produced until the mid-1970's, recieving a number of upgrades and improvements during its life span. The pretty lines of the E Type were a revelation at its launch, and the elegant cars still turn heads in the 21st century.

Join us as we celebrate the E Type at All British Day 2022.

2022........... This event will also be celebrating 100 years since the birth of the 'Austin 7'. A vehicle that changed the lives of ordinary people in the early twenties, when motoring on 4 wheels became accessible for the masses.
