Toowoomba Amateur Radio Model Aero Club

About Our Club

Located on the New England Highway just 14 kilometres south of the beautiful city of Toowoomba, the Ivy James field has been the home of Tarmac since the 70's.


What began in 1974 with a small group of modellers, flying in an area close to town, has now developed into a thriving club with wonderful facilities, friendly members and a vast array of models.


In 1998, MAAA purchased the property and granted a long-term lease to TARMAC through the MAAQ, thus ensuring our clubs home well into the future. Our members will always be grateful to Ivy James for allowing us to use a section of her property and to Dr. Jeffrey Phillps for his tireless efforts and the major role he played, in securing the land on which we now call home.
