The Galmatic Story

Empowering Women and 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!

Want to Know a little more about Your Car?

Then you have come to the right place! 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.
We aim to make EVERYBODY road ready, and to empower our students to take this sense of proficiency into every aspect of their lives.

Established in 2007

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, to make going to the mechanic less confusing and intimidating.
