About Us

The MMACA is a Tasmanian based organisation made up of affiliated Clubs and private members. It can have members from anywhere in the world but its primary benefits are discounts from local hobby shops, Public Liability cover for its Tasmanian members and priority use of the Model Park at 137 Howard Road, Goodwood, Tasmania.

Our first Exhibition in 1992 at the Derwent Entertainment Centre raised just over $5000 for charity and the Exhibitions have gone on to be the Glenorchy Lions Club’s major ongoing fund raiser.The Association was loosely established following the 1993 Exhibition and the next year discussions started with the Glenorchy City Council about a possible site for a Model Operating Park within that City’s precincts. As time progressed it was found to be in the Association,s best interests to incorporate, so in 2000 the Model Makers And Collectors Association Inc. came into being.The Glenorchy Lions Club have been a tremendous help to both the Exhibitions and the Association by providing up front funds for things like the significant deposit on the Entertainment Centre and some pre - event advertising. As well they provide upward of 30 members who do a huge amount of lift and carry on set up day of the Exhibition. They also provide the Public Liability Insurance under which the Exhibitions are conducted.The Lions Club is the Patron Body of The Model Makers and Collectors Association Inc. and as such they are now providing much needed assistance with the construction of the Model Park, stage 1 of which opened in December 2006.

Affiliated organisations include the Southern Tasmanian Model Car Club and Marine Modellers Assocation – Tasmania.

Alderman, Kristie Johnston, Mayor of Glenorchy is Honorary Patron.
