The Galmatic Story

EMPOWERING Women & Teenagers since 2007

At Galmatic we help Australian Women and teenagers feel confident and comfortable popping the bonnet of their car.

We do this with our hands-on workshops and online courses.
We like to think of you as our passenger on this journey.

So grab an oil rag and let us roll up the garage door!


We are the leading experts in ‘everyday’ car know-how.

We provide you with a safe and no judgement zone to learn new life skills.

Car stuff that EVERYBODY needs to know!

Want to know a little more about your car?

We provide specialised training and education to teenagers, parents and school students through our incursions, workshops and online programs.
These work to empower individuals with knowledge and skills to ignite a sense of accomplishment and autonomy.
Cars Guide found that 65% of women have no idea how to maintain their car!
Oh but that sounds so serious! Don’t worry, we plan to change that.


We made getting your hands greasy fun!

Hi, I’m Eleni and I started Galmatic back in 2007.
My first car was a 1958 Holden and as a teenager, I wanted to know some basic car skills but had no idea where to go to learn.
After years of tinkering on that car and working as a corporate trainer, I wanted to use my training skills and provide women and learner drivers with basic car maintenance skills.
I wanted to make going to the mechanic less confusing and intimidating!
And now at 1 million Australians and counting, I’d love to help you get your hands greasy too!


Entertaining & Experienced

Our team consists of outstanding educators, each with decades of experience in teaching.
With our ‘Rosie the Riveter’ style, we keep students engaged while they learn invaluable skills through both our practical and online workshops by using real-world examples and hands-on experience.

“At the ripe old age of 45 I decided I was sick of not knowing anything about my car, something I rely on every day. Thank God I found Galmatic! I recommend it to anyone. Never feel powerless again!”
