Huebner Motors Where we started to now...

Huebner Toyota began in 1973 on the banks of the Brisbane River, South Brisbane and traded on this site until the Queensland Government resumed the land to create Expo 88 and later the Southbank we know today. Klaus Huebner moved to Beaudesert Toyota in 1978 and quickly set about creating a new showroom and workshop employing local staff on the site we now know as Coles Beaudesert. After the closure of Beaudesert’s Holden in 1983 GMH and Klaus Huebner teamed up to bring Holden back to the Scenic Rim. In 1985 Klaus constructed a new showroom and workshop right next door to Toyota. It was at this time that Neil Dagan joined the Holden team, 26 years later and Neil is still a part of the team as the Toyota Parts manager.

Huebner Toyota moved to its current location, 189 Brisbane Street in 1986. It was at this time that Beaudesert Holden moved next door into 191 Brisbane Street and was sold on a couple of years later. It was then moved and 191 Brisbane Street became home to the St Vincent De Paul Society. Mark bought Huebner Toyota from his father Klaus in 1988. It was in December 2002 that Mark acquired Beaudesert Mazda and became a second franchise. Now Huebner Motors employs 36 staff and services the Scenic Rim, Logan and Gold Coast areas selling over 900 vehicles per year. Over the past 40 years Huebner Motors has supported many local sporting teams some of which include the Beaudesert Soccer Club, Beaudesert Golf Club, Jimboomba Juniors Soccer Team, Tamborine Golf Club, South East Queensland
