The Blue Knights® International was founded in
1974 in the USA. The Blue Knights® is the largest law
enforcement motorcycle club in the world with over 20,000 members.
History in Australia dates back to 1978. We are the oldest Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club
in Australia. We are referred to as Blue Knights®
Australia (BKAUS). Towards the end of 1993 the original Australia I which was the only Australian Chapter,
disbanded with some members maintaining their links as members of Washington I Chapter. Then in December 2004,
a “National Get Together” was organised which took place in Broken Hill, New South Wales and interested Law
Enforcement Officers from around Australia attended and a discussion took place that lead to the idea of reforming
the Blue Knights® in Australia.
Then on May 28, 2005 Blue Knights® Australia I
Chapter was re charted by ‘Robbo’ as President (who was a member back in the late 1980’s). Initially, the
Australia I chapter was managed from Sydney with Directors in all States and Territories. This group structure
allowed for state representation and autonomy of rides with National administration being conducted centrally.
After a new Board of Directors was elected in 2008, the National Executive moved to Perth, Western
Australia. From there, another three Australian Chapters grew.
Australian Chapters are now: Australia I and Australia IV catering for Western
Australia; Australia II catering for NSW, ACT, VIC, SA and TAS; and Australia III catering for QLD and the
NT. Australia-wide, the Blue Knights® have about 240
members. Applications can be made to join any one of the Chapters, regardless of where the applicant resides,
however a person can only be a member of one Chapter.
