The Toowoomba and District Old Machinery Society Inc. was formed in 1996 by a
group of local enthusiast who discovered the need for a club of likeminded people
interested in old machinery and memorabilia.
The aim of the society is to preserve and promte the interest of old machinery
within the community. The society started with six members and saw a rapid
growth within four years to over eighty members. Today the society is one of, if
not the largest of its type in Queensland with over 150 members actively involved
in community events.
The society has achieved a well-recognised reputation within the community. We are
actively involved and have a great working relationship with the Jondaryan Woolshed.
We attend over thirty different events throughout the year including local shows, fetes, fundraising events and field days and provide
both static and working displays. We have members from all over Australia and New Zealand and provide displays throughout
Queensland and the east coast of Australia and from Melbourne to Barcaldine.
We welcome new members and can provide everyone with appropriate insurance cover for operating vintage machinery within the
community. The Society can assist those in dating most types of equipment. We welcome juniors and are only too happy in
assisting them and helping them explore the ways of their forefathers. We hold our annual working field days during the last
weekend in October every year at the Oakey Showgrounds.
In 2006, the Toowoomba and District Old Machinery Society Inc. held the 2nd Queensland Heritage Rally hosting over 300 engines,
300 tractors, 50 cars and trucks, 20 steam and many other exhibits. T.A.D.O.M.S invites you all to attend the 7th Queensland
Heritage Rally, to be held at the Oakey Showgrounds on the 28th, 29th and 30th October, 2016.
