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.
