Annual Customer Open Day
The Must Do Event For All Car Lovers
Once a year, motoring enthusiasts from all over the country are invited to come and see just what fires the Bowden’s passion ‘to make the best car care products under the Southern Cross’.
The Bowden boys host a fully guided tour of their exclusive Bowden’s Own headquarters - the home of Australia’s greatest private collection of famous racing and sports machinery. Australia’s motor racing history created by the greats - Moffat, Brock, Johnson, Beechey and Geoghegan.
Their unmistakable cars are preserved and on display for your viewing pleasure. These iconic race and road machines are brought alive by the Bowden’s intimate and enthusiastic knowledge of each and every car on show - making for an outstanding day you’ll be talking about for years to come.

The Open Day is strictly by invite only. Free invitations are only available with four of our big car care kits, full of the finest car care products we make to care for our much loved cars; The Super Size, the Mother Bucket, Road Trip Kit or Brand Spanking New car care kit are their names. Each kit has an invite for one person and their spouse/ partner/ son/ daughter. The invites are a free addition to these great kits. Inside each kit is a registration form, fill this out and send back with a proof of purchase (AutObarn or Bowden's Own receipt). We will contact you upon receipt of these, with the information and tickets for the day. These tickets never expire till you use them, if you have registered, we will keep you in the loop with new tour dates as they are announced. Full details on these car care kits with the free tickets can be found by clicking here.

Where is it?
We are located on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. The local Maroochydore airport has multiple discount flights daily with Virgin and Jetstar, to nearly all the capital cities in Australia. We always have the Open Day's on a Sunday, so bring the family and enjoy a weekend away on the coast. Best place to stay would be the tourist/cafe strip of Mooloolaba beach, the Sunday meeting place is an easy 15 min drive away.
When is it?
We are now filling the next tour for early 2014, dates to be advised soon. Previously we have been honoured with the likes of Kevin Bartlett, Allan Moffat, Coiln Bond, John French, Fred Gibson, Phil Brock, John Harvey, Bob Morris and Dick Johnson to attend the different days as our guests, making it something extra special for those attending. By having these legends along you can certainly understand why all 100% of these tour days book out so quickly.
