About the CTAA

The Camper Trailer Association of Australia (CTAA) is about bringing together camper trailer enthusiasts, dealers and manufacturers interested in protecting and expanding the outdoor camping lifestyle. From education and training to pleasure drives, touring trips, competitive challenges, charity events and keeping enthusiasts informed of threats to their right to camp in this beautiful country of ours.

When you associate with us, you add your voice to the many camper trailer owners fighting for the freedom to enjoy camping. Don’t wait until your favourite camping area is threatened! Take action today by teaming up with the CTAA and support the group dedicated to protecting your right to camp and helping you to get outdoors and camping more often.

The CTAA is a division of the Australian Motorist Association (AMA), a not for profit company belonging to the group of AMA clubs.

About the AMA Clubs

The Australian Motorist Association is part of the not for profit group of AMA clubs which also includes the Australian the Australian Motor Association and the Australian Motorcyclist Association (the AMA).

Membership to the AMA Clubs entitles members to the benefits offered by the AMA including the participation in any AMA sanctioned activity or event, organised by the AMA, their divisions, subsidiaries and chapters.

The Mission of the AMA in partnership with government, community, business and families is to reduce the risk of injury or death of Australian drivers and riders by providing opportunities for essential skills and knowledge to be learnt ‘off road’ to be better at driving and riding 'on road.' The Vision is to enhance road safety for Australians, through 'off road' driving and riding experience.

Growth in memberships has enabled the AMA to test funding models that could be used to acquire land and establish facilities in suitable localities throughout Australia to support the objects of the Association. It was decided that the co-operative model was the most appropriate legal model for this enterprise because it was capable of bringing in investment from AMA members and engaging the same community in its activities through active membership. 

About the AMA Coops

All AMA co-operatives (coops) are part of the not for profit group of AMA coops, which can each issue shares in order to finance the acquisition of land and associated infrastructure for living, camping, driving, riding and any associated activities.

Membership to the AMA Coops entitles members to purchase share(s) in a coop and share in the cost of buying land for the establishment of member owned Recreational Vehicle (RV) and Off Road Vehicle (ORV) Parks and Villages across Australia.

As described in the rules, the primary activity of an AMA RV Park, is to provide an area where people can stay overnight, or longer, in allotted 'campsites', whereas the primary activity of an AMA RV Village is to provide an area where people can live with their RV's and visitors can stay overnight, or longer, in allotted 'campsites'.

The primary activity of an AMA ORV Park, is to provide an area where camping and associated activities and driving and riding skills and knowledge can be learnt and practised ‘off road’, whereas the primary activity of an AMA ORV Village is to provide an area where people can live with their ORV's and visitors can camp overnight and participate in associated activities and learn skills and knowledge from practising driving and riding 'off road'.

Each AMA coop property is a home base for the AMA Charity.

About the AMA Charity

AMA Charity is the charitable arm of the Australian Motor Association (AMA). The AMA is registered with the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commissions and was established in 2020 by the driver and rider training profession as a means of enhancing road and waterway safety for Australians, through early and further driving and riding experience.

Quite simply, AMA Charity is about drive safe, ride safe

The Mission of AMA Charity is to reduce the risk of injury or death of Australian drivers and riders by providing opportunities for essential skills and knowledge to be learnt at a young age, to be safer at driving and riding at licence age. The AMA Charity achieves this aim by establishing facilities in suitable localities throughout Australia so driver and rider education opportunities may be provided through training, programs and other associated activities.
