The Club offers its members the opportunity to take part in two types of runs. One is the Day Run held on various Sundays throughout the year and the other is the Mid-week run held regularly on the fourth Wednesday of each month. There is also one weekend away, usually held in July.
These runs are organized to allow time for socializing as well as enjoying a drive with fellow enthusiasts.
Details of meeting times and places for the runs are advertised on the Calendar page of this website and also in the Octagon. A contact name is always given so that you can check on the latest details of the run.
Most participants drive their MG but other makes are not excluded. Below are reports and photos of some recent runs held by MG Car Club.

JUlY MIDWEEK RUN
Overnight run 22nd-23rd July by Neil Taylor; photos by Malcolm Campbell and Neil Taylor.
A cloudy cool morning met us at Doug Larsen Park Beenleigh for the start of the run to Warwick. We had 12 MGs and 7 other cars, picking up another 6 cars on the way only one of which was an MGB.
We headed off around 9:30am to Beaudesert, then onto Wyaralong Dam for morning tea where we met another 5 cars. The sun still refused to shine so it was a cool morning tea stop. After morning tea we headed to Boonah then on to Mt Alford visiting the Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm where the women spent up on Lavender products before we travelled a short distance to a park in Mt Alford for lunch. Seven cars left us after lunch choosing to only do a day run. After lunch we headed towards Carneys Creek, The Head and Spring Creek Road to The Falls stopping at Carr’s Lookout to take in the view. It was quite a spectacular view and a brief stop as it felt like -1 degree (it actually wasn’t) but sure felt like it. From here we travelled onto Killarney then to our destination in Warwick.
Happy hour had to be curtailed as the Motel did not have a COVID plan for such an event so it was social distancing around the room balconies and cars at the motel for happy hour. We then strolled down in the cold to the Condamine Club where they catered for all 30+ of us with a lovely meal. Considering the COVID restrictions all venues made us feel welcome and had all protocols in place for a safe visit. Next day some went with Jeff and Pat on a run home via Leyburn, Pittsworth and Toowoomba while others made it home via various routes. All in all it was a great run with fantastic scenery and great company.
A message from Jeff re the Thursday home run:
“Eleven cars participated in the Thursday run through Leyburn and Pittsworth, enjoying some great roads and typical country scenery. Pittsworth provided an enjoyable morning tea stop, followed by a run down the Toowoomba bypass and a lunch stop and plenty of conversation at the Floating Café at Grantham.”

JUNE MIDWEEK RUNS
After the lack of runs because of the Virus restrictions, it was decided to have two runs on this occasion with a maximum participation of 20 to keep within the confines of the current rules. This proved very successful as the bookings for the runs filled very quickly and then everyone enjoyed the runs planned by Bruce Bayliss and Errol Hoger.
Photos of Bruce's run - mainly cars - were from Malcolm Campbell; and those of Errol's run were taken by Jeff Heslewood and these include the cow photos.
