The Tour of World Class Automotive Proving Ground, will include site history of The Australian Automotive Research Centre (AARC), a detailed presentation on their mission with an overview of their customers and unique facilities, as well as a deep dive into the Centres future plans.

During the site tour, the Manager will provide informative commentary whilst guests sit back on the bus and take in the extensive range of evaluation facilities provided to all vehicle and component manufacturers.

AARC occupies a 1000 hectare site near Anglesea, 125km south-west of Melbourne and is the largest privately owned and independently operated automotive testing facility in Australia.

Test facilities encompass virtually all driving conditions found in Australia, accommodating vehicles from passenger cars and four wheel drives to heavy trucks and mining equipment. There are many test roads and a variety of surfaces, including a 4.2km hot mixed surface road designed for testing component and vehicle durability.

Under jointly agreed conditions, AARC allows the construction, by its clients, of engineering test sites specific to that client. This ensures clients can conduct exactly the research and development they require.

There will be a return coach transferring all guests from a central Melbourne location (TBA) to the Australian Automotive Research Centre, which is approximately one and a half hours from Melbourne CBD. This bus will also be used to conduct the tour onsite. Please confirm on the registration form if you plan on utilising the bus services provided.
