The Cairns Model Railway Club Inc (CMRC) was formed in 2018 to foster the interest in and development of model railways and associated model making.

Since inception the club has been donated an HO shunting layout, an N scale layout which replicates an industrial town in the north of England and two large HO Layouts.

The club has close connections with the National Model Railway Association (NMRA) which enables it to provide a public liability insurance for the club and its members when on official club business (i.e. meetings, public gatherings, etc). All members of CMRC are required to also be members of NMRA to achieve this.

The club holds informal meetings every Thursday evening (5.00pm) and a formal monthly meeting on the third Sunday of each month (10.30am) at it’s interim clubroom, to which all visitors and prospective members are welcome.
