1956 Moomba TT

The 1956 Moomba TT was a motor race for open and closed sports cars, staged at the Albert Park Circuit in Victoria, Australia on 11 March 1956. It was the second Moomba TT, with a similar race having been run at Albert Park in 1955. Contested over 150 miles, it was the feature race on the first day of a two-day race meeting which was conducted on the two Sundays of Melbourne's Moomba Festival. The meeting was organised by the Light Car Club of Australia and the Argus Moomba Motor Races Committee.

The race was won by Tony Gaze driving a HWM Jaguar.
