Neptune

Send This Page To A Friend

The Neptune Oil Company was registered in Australia in 1905 but Neptune products had been sold here since about 1894. Motor spirit went on sale in 1917 under the Waratah brandname and was available in every state by 1924. In 1926 the Anglo-Dutch Shell Company purchased the Neptune/Waratah concern. It was not until 1952 that Neptune petrol became available under the Neptune name. This was short lived as Shell droped the name all together in 1959. Pumps, with their horizontal pinstriping, were characterised by the unique 'King Neptune' logo.
