IS SHARING IN THE COST OF BUYING A PROPERTY FOR CAMPING OF INTEREST TO YOU?

The AMA property team has found an ideal off grid property for members that could be used for overnight camping and as a base for driving and riding out to the surrounding areas.

The 100 acre (40 ha) property we have in mind is located in South East QLD and has direct access to dual sport trail riding nirvana in the adjoining 20,000 acre state forest.

This property is fully fenced and has a large dam for swimming and fishing. The property is located on a quiet no-through (no traffic) all-weather unsealed road. Mains grid power is not currently available on the property however, services do pass along the front boundary.

The AMA property team has suggested the 'once off' share price for families will be around $2,500 per share. A family, constitutes all persons in the immediate family plus any juniors in the household, which the adults may be guardians of.

It is expected there will only be 125 shares available in this property, which will pay for the property, government taxes, development approvals and any immediate works to be actioned.

Shareholders will also be required to pay a yearly membership subscription fee to be a part of the share arrangement. This fee is expected to be around $250 per family, which will cover utilities, rates, improvements, maintenance, etc.

Being a part of the purchase arrangement would mean the shareholder family would have unlimited and unrestricted access to the property for the intended use.

Shareholders could also determine whether the property would remain private for the use of shareholder families only or whether it could be open to use by other AMA members for a fee.

Please note, this post is not about telling you how the share arrangement will work as we'll do that in the coming weeks, but rather to gauge your interest in whether you would like to share in the cost of buying such a property.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

The AMA Property Team

THE AUSTRALIAN MOTOR ASSOCIATION IS NOW OFFICIALLY A REGISTERED CHARITY

Every year around 1,200 motorists and motorcyclists are killed on Australia's roads. The highest percentage of these deaths are attributed to the young and inexperienced. 

Any parent whose child has had limited driving or riding experience will tell you the greatest fear of their adult life is watching their child drive solo down the street for the first time.

But for those parents that brought their children up driving SSV's and 4WD's or riding ATV's and dirt bikes 'off road', will tell you they have the confidence that their child might just have enough experience to not be one of the 1,200. 

It is only with the assistance of our principal corporate partner Small to Medium Enterprise Australia (SMEA), that the Australian Motor Association (AMA) Ltd has finally been able to achieve its goal of becoming a registered charity.

Being registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC) means every Australian that also believes, learning and gaining 'off road' driving and riding skills and knowledge will make you a safer motorist and motorcyclist 'on road', can now join with the AMA in a common goal:

To provide pre licence and licence age Australians with the ability to learn superior driving and riding skills and knowledge 'off road', to not be an Australian 'on road' statistic. 

To achieve our charter of drive safe, ride safe the AMA aims to purchase land and establish facilities in suitable localities throughout Australia so 'off road' driver and rider education opportunities may be provided through training, programs, sport and recreation activities. 

Your donation or bequest to the AMA will help us to achieve our common goal.

AMA MEMBERS CAN SOON SHARE IN THE COST OF BUYING LAND FOR MOTOR VEHICLE USE

One of the five Objects of the AMA is to acquire land and establish facilities in suitable localities throughout Australia to support the objects of the Association.
 
The management of the AMA has been working to achieve this goal and very soon members will be given the opportunity to share in the cost of buying land for motor vehicle use.
 
The concept is simple, AMA members will be able to purchase shares, which will collectively fund the purchase of land.
 
Shareholders will be required to pay a yearly membership fee, which will collectively fund ongoing rates, utilities, etc plus depending on the size of a property, may also fund a facility manager, bookkeeper, etc.
 
Shareholders will determine whether the property is to be open for use by other AMA members and what fees are to be charged or whether the property it is to remain for private use by shareholders only.
 
If such a property is to be open for use by other AMA members and the facility makes money, shareholders may be entitled to a return on their investment.
 
The first appropriate property has been found and will most likely be restricted to 4WD, SSV, trials and enduro use.
 
The cost of a share for AMA members will be $2,500 each. Members will be entitled to purchase more than one share.
 
As a part owner of the property, shareholders will be entitled to use the property as much as they want, for themselves and their immediate family members, as long as they are also AMA members.
 
As long as Shareholders pay the ongoing yearly membership fee, they will not need to pay any property use fees as other non shareholders would be required to pay for using the facility.
 
The goal of the AMA to purchase land is now a reality, and our mission is to provide areas where Australians can learn essential skills and knowledge 'off road' to be safer at driving and riding 'on road'.
 
Details of our first property will be released soon, but in the meantime if you have knowledge of a property that might be appropriate for motor vehicle use, please email us information about owners, address, etc to .
 
Rebuilding tracks and getting young people and more Australians involved in off road motor vehicle activities is our aim.
