The Australian Motor Heritage Foundation (AMHF) is a not-for-profit national foundation that is dedicated to preserving motoring heritage in all its forms including cars, motorcycles, heavy vehicles, and aircraft. We are a proud partner of the ARDC and are excited to be associated with and located adjacent to the new Australian Motorsport Innovation Precinct at Sydney Motorsport Park.
AMHF detects, collects, preserves, and catalogs a wide range of motoring reference material including thousands of books, magazines, photographs and film, race programmes and results, technical data, brochures, oral history, artwork and other reference material going back to the turn of the 20th century. Much of this information is rare and irreplaceable. A relational database and digitization of this material is well underway so that it can be accessed for research and educational purposes by all involved in the motoring sector including enthusiasts, Schools, Colleges, Universities, commercial enterprises, and the general public.
Our foundation is manned by a loyal and enthusiastic group of Volunteers from varied backgrounds who have detailed expertise in many areas of our motoring heritage. Many of our Volunteers are members of other car and motorcycle clubs and some are active competitors in historic and other car and motorcycle racing. We are here to help and encourage the ongoing interests of members of all clubs and other motoring enthusiasts of all ages across Australia with information and advice.
“The Australian Motor Heritage Foundation provides a special, accessible way to see and understand the way Australians have over the last 120+ years always been innovators and leaders in the development of motoring and aviation, allowing the opening up our vast country, providing employment, economic growth and enjoyment. Those innovators of the past have been an essential part of our national genius in which we can be very proud. They took risks and made it possible for us to develop Australia and allow us to achieve the standard of living we enjoy. Our new innovators are embracing the exciting future as they build on the heritage of enterprise of the past which AMHF strives to preserve and make available to all.”
