Toyota builds three models - Camry, Camry Hybrid and Aurion - in Australia. The fully integrated Altona manufacturing plant incorporates state-of-the-art weld, paint and assembly shops to produce cars that have been independently recognised as Australia's best quality locally built vehicles.

Engine Plant Renewal Project
In September 2010 Toyota Australia announced that it would begin manufacturing more fuel efficient engines for the locally built Camry and Camry Hybrid sedans from late 2012.
In preparation, Toyota Australia will renew the existing Altona engine plant and install energy efficient manufacturing equipment. Works will begin in August 2011 and are expected to be completed by late January 2012.
