The Club organises technical and social events for the benefit of all members. Most events are one day events held at picturesque locations in and near the Sydney area. Morning tea and lunch breaks provide a relaxing social get together for participants.

Technical Events include visits to Mercedes-Benz workshops with various topics such as car detailing, maintenance tips and smash repairs are covered during these excursions.

Social Outings such as boat cruises, theatre parties, long weekends away, are organized for members enjoyment. The annual Christmas picnic complete with Santa tops off the years events.
