Sandhurst Automotive was established in 2012. Julian Tuohey began the business as a self employed mechanic operating from a workshop in Huntly. The business, now located in East Bendigo, has grown significantly over the past few years and Julian's wife, Hayley, now helps run the business. 

We service a wide range of clients in the local and surrounding areas, including business fleet customers and individuals. Sandhurst Automotive strives to provide the highest quality and best services to all of their customers.




Julian has been in the automotive industry since 2002 and after completing his apprenticeship as a Light Vehicle Mechanic, went on to complete specialist training in LPG mechanics. He is now a licensed VicRoads Roadworthy technician, and Air Conditioning Specialist.




Hayley has completed Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and Bachelor of Information Technology at LaTrobe University Bendigo.


After working in IT for several years, she now manages the Sandhurst Automotive business and accounting.
