Being an isolated country largely in the early 19th and 20th centuries, Australia was one of the few countries to design and produce cars from scratch, with the first petrol powered car in Australia being designed and built by Tarrant.

The first major company to set up shop was Ford Motors Australia, and has been a leader in car manufacturing and sales for decades. However. it was Holden Motors, partnered with General Motors, that ultimately became the leading car manufacturer of Australian Cars.

Many companies have come and gone from the Australian market with some surviving and others that have been taken over. HistoryofCars.com.au is an exhaustive look at history of cars in Australia.
