Thank you Callaghan Motors

Standing Tall in Warrnambool extends its appreciation to one of our great supporters, the team at Callaghan Motors. Being a self-funded program, we rely on the generosity and support others, and encourage members of our community to support those who support us.


Callaghan Motors have been serving South West Victoria and the Great Ocean Road areas for over 80 years - learn more about Callaghans below:

In 1933, Mr. Frank Callaghan joined forces with Campbell Graham and established Graham and Callaghan Motors, with a starting capital of 75 pounds. Unfortunately, Mr. Graham was killed in a car accident about twelve months later, leaving Mr. Frank Callaghan to run the business on his own from 1934.

During World War II, Callaghan Motors were commissioned by the Federal Government to produce munitions. This was a major achievement and Callaghans were proud to be part of the Australian war effort.

Callaghan Motors association with Holden began in 1958. The son of Frank Callaghan, Mr. Brian Callaghan, joined Callaghan Motors in 1964 at the age of 22, after completing a degree at Melbourne University. Brian went on to become Dealer Principal and has since been succeeded by his son Stephen.

Callaghan Motors are Warrnambool’s longest established Motor Vehicle Dealership.

Callaghans have become an integral part of the local history with 80 years of continual service to the people of Western Victoria.
