About Suzuki Queensland: 

In 1959, a long-established Queensland family owned company went on a mission to Japan to find a quality auto product for the people of Queensland and Northern Rivers NSW. Suzuki Auto Co. (Mayfair W’Sale Pty Ltd’s trading name) became the first privately owned Suzuki distributor out of Japan – and within a year of that trip, Suzuki Motorcycles could be seen cruising alongside our beautiful beaches, stunning hinterlands and zipping through city traffic. Suzuki Auto Co. then continued to expand into Suzuki automobiles, with the first cruising Queensland streets by mid 1974. The Suzuki brand continues to be loved by Queenslander’s for its passion of making ultra-dependable vehicles that exude the brand’s values of fun, freedom, spirit and lifestyle.
