About Us

Central Highland Auto - part of The Black Automotive Group

The Black Automotive Group comprises 8 motor vehicle dealerships throughout Queensland and New South Wales, 9 Budget Rent a Car outlets in South West Queensland and Boonarga Welding, a major production facility in Dalby. The Black Automotive Group commenced in 1983 with a single Black Toyota dealership in Chinchilla. The subsequent growth of the group can be attributed to the core business philosphies of not disadvantaging rural residents for purchasing locally, and offering exceptional customer service.

The past five years has seen a significant investment in infrastructure.  This has included all new custom designed facilities constructed for Black Toyota at Dalby, Warwick and Grafton as well as large scale expansions and refurbishments n Roma, Chinchilla and Emerald and the opening of a new Service Centre in Miles.
