Qld Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club was established to provide social & welfare support for bikers who are Vietnam Veterans. It is also recognised as an Ex Service Organization and Welfare Group in its own right by the Dept. of  Veterans’ Affairs and other various government and veteran groups.

Officially formed on 18th August, 1990 (Vietnam Veterans’ Day, also known as Long Tan Day) in Anzac Square in Brisbane. Today, apart from the Queensland Chapter, there are now 3 other Chapters in Qld (Central Qld, North Qld and Far North Qld) – all separate, autonomous bodies, but with a common goal.
