Formed in 2014 after a hugely successful ‘Caterpillar’ Rally at Lake Goldsmith, Victoria, Chapter 19 has a shed at the Lake Goldsmith earthmoving arena which serves as a display centre for our members collections where the general public can come and enjoy the story of Caterpillar equipment. Our members also get special access to technical information, tooling and replica parts along with discounted ACMOC, Chapter and Caterpillar merchandise. You do not need to own a Caterpillar tractor to be a member, we have many members that just enjoy the history of earthmoving and the Caterpillar brand and the camaraderie of being in a Club like ACMOC. Chapter 19 also offers membership renewal services locally and is a NHMA member Club, offering public liability insurance Australia wide. We serve the States of Victoria & Tasmania, but also have members across all of Australia.

Please see attached information pertaining to the NHMA AGM. 




DW21 4The Chapter has received a very generous donation of a DW21 86E4062 in water cart configuration. Whilst complete the Chapter does need to repair and reassemble the engine, but it will make a fine edition to the collection and come in very handy at the Summer Lake Goldsmith rallies to keep the dust down! A special thank you to Mark Gearon for the donation. Mark also has some other classic Cat's that he is keen to allow us to show at future rallies and the Chapter has agreed to provide Mark with a complimentary 3 year membership in appreciation of his support. The DW21 is pictured arriving at Steve Jackel's place - thanks Steve for making this happen!

Today the following advice has been received from the 2021 NHMA National Rally Committee:

'The Cudgegong Valley Antique Machinery Club regret to advise that due to the ongoing and volatile COVID-19 situation we have made the decision to cancel the 2021 National Historical Machinery Association Rally. President of the CVAMC, Brian Jones, said “This was not an easy decision as many people have been looking forward to the Rally, including ourselves.  However, the safety of our volunteers, exhibitors and visitors is of highest importance so we do not feel it appropriate to proceed with the event given the current COVID-19 situation.”

The Rally was set to be held at the Australian Rural Education Centre in Mudgee, NSW, in April 2021. CVAMC and AREC hosted the NHMA Rally back in 2013 and it was very successful and a great event for the Region. Any exhibitors that have already booked and paid will receive a full refund in the coming weeks. All interested parties will receive communication via email shortly. When a new date for the Rally is confirmed it will be posted on the CVAMC web site ('

The NHMA Committee of Management will now commence negotiations with the Cudgegong Valley Club regarding the possibility of the club hosting the Rally at a future date.  It is hoped that further information can be supplied to member clubs by the end of this month.
