Australian Automobile Association

The Australian Automobile Association (AAA) was established in 1924. The AAA is the peak organisation for Australia's motoring clubs and their eight million members, and advances the interests of all road users across Australia to ensure land transport networks are safe and sustainable, and that the cost and access to transport is fair.[1]
