About Tynan Motors

Tynan Motors is a family-owned and run company that focuses on providing professional and personal service to every customer. While we have expanded well beyond the sole Mazda dealership established by Michael Tynan in 1966, the Tynan Motor Group remains a company built on integrity, embracing all the values of family. 

For more than 55 years, our friendly staff of over 300 based in the Sutherland Shire and Illawarra region of NSW are here to assist you with your selling, servicing or financing needs. With 15 brands we are confident we have a vehicle to suit your lifestyle from Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG, Subaru, Subaru STi, Kia, MG, Renault, Hyundai, Jeep, Chrysler, LDV, RAM, Suzuki, Mitsubishi & Mahindra. Visit one of our showrooms to browse our range at Miranda, Sutherland, Kirrawee or Albion park. We also have 3 convenient service locations at Miranda, Kirrawee or Wollongong.

Community Involvement

The Tynan Motor Group plays an active role in the community and participates in many charity events all year round. We also take pride in sponsoring several sporting, cultural and health organisations throughout the St George and Sutherland Shire. These include:

  • Michael Tynan Challenge

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Tynan Motors, in loving memory of Michael Tynan and in support of Medical research we gave back to the community bigger than ever by raising $520,000 for the Medical Research in 2016 for the first ever MTC. The Michael Tynan Challenge is now an annual event that includes a Coastal Walk, Drive & Scooter Challenge, Luncheon or Gala Dinner and a Walk to Work event. Since 2016, we have raised over $2 Million Dollars for local medical research including:

  • Australian Nuclear Science and Technology (ANSTO)
  • University of Wollongong Medical Research (UOW)

  • University of Wollongong Programs

Tynan Motors assists the University of Wollongong by participating in the Professional Experience in Business Internship Program. This program is seen as a valuable opportunity for students looking to further their career prospects within their desired discipline. The internship opportunity prepares students for real world scenarios and teaches them skills that can never be learnt in the classroom. Some students have claimed it is the most beneficial aspect of their University life and end up securing part or full time work because of it. 

We also have a scholarship program that supports studies and research at a molecular level called the Tynan Family Molecular Horizons Honours Scholarship. Over 5 years we have been able to support many students further their studies with these scholarships.

  • ANSTO

Through the Michael Tynan Challenge, we support Australian Nuclear Science and Technology (ANSTO) from 2020. Many people may not realise that ANSTO works in areas of health along side the environment and the nuclear fuel cycle to find solutions to some of the biggest questions in science for the benefit of all Australians.

  • Cronulla Seagulls Football

The Tynan MG Sutherland branch has sponsored our local football club, the Cronulla Seagulls since 2021. They are one of the largest clubs in New South Wales with approximately 1600 registered players ranging from children turning 5 years of age through to players in their 60’s. We look forward to their 2022 season.

  • St George Illawarra Dragons

Our partnership with the St George Illawarra Dragons has been a long lasting partnership that started with our founder, Michael Tynan nearly 20 years ago. We are a major sponsor of the football team and our staff represent us at each home game whether it be Kogarah oval or WINN Stadium. We provide the staff and selected players with Tynan Motor vehicles. 

  • The Sutherland Shire Area Command Police Ute 

In 2013, Michael Tynan partnered with our Sutherland Shire Police Command to change the face of the police car as we handed over the keys to a Mitsubishi Triton GLR. Today the ute is still in force in our local area and has been used by both the crime management unit/crime prevention and youth liaison officers. The Triton has helped with pop ups at the Sutherland farmers markets, the Surf Life Saving Club, PCYC and many community centre talks. We love to see that the car is being put to good use.

  • The Cronulla Golf Club 

In 2020 Tynan Motors joined together with the Cronulla Golf Club as a major sponsor because we believe in giving back to our local community and businesses. You’ll find us on Hole 18 if you visit the green or perhaps escape the sun and enjoy a delicious meal under our balcony umbrellas. 

  • Cambridge Markets in the Sutherland Shire

For the past 3 years Tynan Motors have been a continued major sponsor of the Cambridge markets which usually occur twice a year around Easter and Christmas. These markets are held in Cronulla or Miranda and provide smaller businesses without a shop front an opportunity for them to expose themselves to a larger audience. These are great family friendly events to discover new and local businesses and you’ll find us there also with an array of new models to display.

Awards

  • FBA Hall of Fame

    Tynan Motors has been honoured with induction into the Family Business Australia Hall of Fame, in recognition of our positive contribution to Australian lives, culture and economy.
