About Callaghan Motors

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, Steve.

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.
