The 1982 Australian Rally Championship was a series of five rallying events held across Australia. It was the 15th season in the history of the competition.

Geoff Portman and navigator Ross Runnalls in a Datsun 1600 won the 1982 Championship despite strong opposition from the Fiat 131 Abarth of Greg Carr and Fred Gocentas.

Season review

The 15th Australian Rally Championship was held over five events across Australia, the season consisting of one event each for Queensland, Victoria and West Australia and two for New South Wales. There was no major factory support for any of the teams and with a wide variety of cars and competitors it was a difficult season to predict an outcome. At the end of the year Portman and Runnalls had held off tough opposition from Carr and Gocentas and brought their 12-year-old Datsun 1600 home to its first ARC championship.
