A winning partnership

2017 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix

Guide Dogs Australia are thrilled to have been selected as the charity of the 2017 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix, especially as 2017 is our Diamond Jubilee. That’s 60 years of supercharging the senses of our clients with expert, uniquely qualified practitioners and amazing Guide Dogs.

We can’t wait to showcase what we do and the amazing achievements of our clients at the upcoming 2017 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix. We want to use this international, world-class event to drive awareness of the challenges faced by people with low vision and blindness, and to raise funds to help even more people with our support services. Every dollar raised will go directly towards the training of desperately needed ‘Orientation & Mobility’ Specialists – the wonderful practitioners who work with our clients and teach them the range of sensory techniques that make such a difference to their lives.
