Behind the Wheel

A timely look back at the Australian car industry.

The development and demise of car manufacture in Australia is being marked with a new exhibition of images and records from the National Archives of Australia.

Most people are aware of the Holden, Ford and Toyota factory closures and manufacturing. Fewer are aware that since 1946 we have seen the local manufacture of Morris, Austin, Hillman, Mercedes and Volkswagen.
