Honda established its Australian subsidiary on February 4, 1969, although other companies had been importing and distributing Honda products around the continent since the 1950s. Today, Honda Australia sells a variety of cars including the Accord, Jazz (Fit), Civic sedan, Civic hatch, Civic Type R, HR-V, CR-V, Odyssey, NSX, and the subcompact City sedan.

Honda has created other gold products to celebrate 50 years in Australia. These include a gold CBR1000RR Fireblade motorcycle, CRF450L motorcycle, CRF50F Kids Fun bike, and even a HRU19 Buffalo Premium lawnmower. An EU22i Generator also gets the golden touch.

Honda will showcase the one-off gold products throughout Australia this year.
