Patriots Australia [The Club], is a Military Motorcycle Club (MMC) for Regular, Reserve and ex-Serving Members of the Australian or Allied Defence Forces (Navy, Army and Air Force), Patriots Australia MMC was established in 1993 predominately for the benefit of Serving personnel with an interest in Riding and socialising with like minded individuals, constant postings hindered the ability to settle into local Clubs. The formation and establishment of Patriots Australia MMC across the country enabled Members to join and maintain their Membership of the Club throughout their Military Service including deployments and postings, and into their retirement from the Services. This Ethos has served the Club well and we are now in our 28th year. Patriots Australia MMC have Chapters in all States and Territories, so there is always fellowship, support and camaraderie with fellow bike riders available where ever they travel, there are now Patriot organisations in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, USA and South Africa who also provide the same welcome to our Members. Each year we hold an National Annual General Meeting (NAGM) in a different State /Territory, this is so we can ride, meet, socialise and discuss the Clubs past, present and future. The Australian and New Zealand Patriots are both run within the Department of Defence guidelines, we do not allow drugs or violence and we promote the non-sexist policies promoted by the Department of Defence. We are purely an organisation that loves motorcycles, and enjoys the camaraderie of other Service personnel and consider ourselves a Military Motorcycle Club. We are a family oriented Club and as such invite Serving and ex-Serving Members to happily bring along their families to our functions.
