Adelaide Hills Toyota
Here at Adelaide Hills Toyota we strive to support our local community.
We get involved where ever possible to support our local community events, clubs, good causes and more.
We have had the pleasure to be involved in a vast variety of local sponsorship over the years.

National Tree Day
Adelaide Hills Toyota has been involved with National Tree Day for over 10 years. National Tree Day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting and nature care event.
Coordinated by Planet Ark and proudly sponsored by Toyota, this is a special day for all Australians to help out by planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in which they live.
National Tree Day started in 1996 and since then more than 3 million people have planted 23 million seedlings! Each year Adelaide Hills Toyota align themselves with a local school and help them plant trees, also providing the tree guards and gardening gloves and T-Shirts for the students to wear.
Each year we help the Year 7’s at Cornerstone College in Mt Barker to plant over 200 trees and we also take along a Hybrid Corolla. Tom Gilbert, Dealer Principal talks to the students about Hybrid cars and Toyota’s commitment to Hybrid Synergy Drive which is working to create a sustainable driving future.
LJ Hooker Stirling Charity Golf Day
A fantastic initiative by LJ Hooker Stirling who yet again hosted the LJ Hooker Stirling Charity Golf Day 2018 held at the Stirling Golf Club which supports Beyond Blue. From beginners to pros, teams are gathered to play, have some fun and support a great cause. We are a sponsor for this event and again we have given all players the chance to WIN a new HiLux IF they achieve a hole in one!
Adelaide Hills Toyota Sponsors since 2015.
The Adelaide Crows here at Adelaide Hills Toyota!
What a night! We had the pleasure to meet Eddie, Charlie & Anne from the Adelaide Football Club plus all the Adelaide Crows members who came to visit us at our showroom for a special event. The night consisted of meeting the team, grabbing their signatures and a delicious sausage sizzle, a big thank you to The Official Crows Supporters Group who cooked up a storm! Thank you for all coming :)
Good for Footy
The Good for Footy Raffle is a yearly event that Toyota conducts which raises money for grass roots football clubs around Australia. In 2015, the Mt Lofty Football Club together with Adelaide Hills Toyota raised over $2,000 and used the money to help purchase the fabulous marquee pictured.
In 2016 we raised over $3,500 for the club and in 2017 we raised a huge $4,185. This money is a much needed cash injection to a club like the Mt Lofty Devils and will be used to further enhance the opportunities within the club for the young football players.
A big thank you to all the little Mt Lofty Devils who sold the raffle tickets and Toyota Australia for such a wonderful initiative!
Graffiti Removal Program
Adelaide Hills Toyota is delighted to be a collaborative member of the volunteer GET (Graffiti Eater Team) Proud Graffiti Program which removes graffiti throughout the community. A team of 4 dedicated volunteers patrol Mount Barker one morning a week and their efforts have been very successful in fighting the war against Graffiti in our community.Adelaide Hills Toyota has been a key part of this since the program’s inception in 2013 providing a motor vehicle and petrol each week to continue this very important role in the Mt Barker district.
Cornerstone College Car Awareness Day!
We have the absolute pleasure to be involved and offer the year 10 and 11 students topics that cover:
- Safe driving practices (speeding, drink driving, attention and concentration whilst driving, fatigue and other road safety issues)
- Maintenance of vehicles for safety (oil changes, regular servicing, checking wiper blades, tyre pressure, brakes)
- Emergency Repairs (changing tyres, overheating, flat battery or other common roadside problems)
- There are three 6 hour races: two at Victoria Park in Adelaide and one at Loxton. The season culminates in the main pedal prix race at Murray Bridge in September.
We are all aware of the danger on our roads and nothing is more important to us than offering safety awareness to our local community that will soon be behind the wheel!
