Adelaide Hills Motor Restorers Club
Welcome to the Adelaide Hills Motor Restorers Club
The Adelaide Hills Motor Restorers Club was formed in 1984 by a group of people with a common interest in preserving the machinery of our past. In particular, cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors, stationary engines and machinery manufactured in South Australia. Membership is open to anyone who shares this interest whether or not they own any machinery.

Stirling Players Inc
The Stirling Players, initially known as the Hills Drama Group, are the resident theatre group of the Stirling Community Theatre. The group was formed after some committed local residents in 1971 succeeded in their lobby to preserve the iconic 1884 Stirling Institute building, in Avenue Road, Stirling, for use as a community centre, following its threatened demolition. A 25-member committee subsequently resolved to ensure that the old building, newly named the Stirling Community Centre, would get plenty of community use.
The Hills Drama Group’s first production to the public, an evening of one act plays, was presented in June 1972 with the first full length production, ‘Angels in Love’ in November of the same year. It was in 1973 that the group adopted its new name ‘The Stirling Players’ and has gone on to mount at least two productions each year with production profits going towards the old building’s upkeep and facility improvement.
The Stirling Players are now a well-recognised part of the Adelaide amateur theatre scene having produced many award-winning and ‘first production’ plays. And significant upgrades have been made to the Avenue Road building since 1972 including the addition of a rehearsal/change room and props room, and refurbishment of the auditorium and foyer. It now boasts a sophisticated sound & lighting system, a comfortable tiered and carpeted auditorium, a warm and inviting foyer, and inside toilets! And has been renamed the Stirling Community Theatre.
