Customer Open Day

Venue: Bowden HQ

The MUST DO event for all car lovers

A few special times each 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.

What you can look forward to at our next Open Day.

How do I get on the entry list?

The Open Day is strictly by invite only. Free invitations are only available with all of our seven big car care kits, full of the finest products we make to care for our much loved cars. 

Each kit has a free invite for one person and their spouse/partner/son/daughter. Inside each kit is a registration form, fill this out and send it back to us with a proof of purchase (AutObarn, Bowden's Own or other store receipt). We will contact you upon receiving these, with the latest information for the next tour and then send your tickets in the fortnight before the big 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.

Every Person who purchases one of the above kits gets a free ticket for the Open Day.

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 planning to have our final tour for 2016 on Sunday, November 20th. So book in now for this great day. Previously we have been honoured with the likes of Kevin Bartlett, Allan Moffat, Colin Bond, Bruce Hodgson, John French, Fred Gibson, Phil Brock, John Harvey, Ron Thorp, 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 these tours book out so quickly.
