The Club
The club was formed with a view to catering to people with all types of 4WD from the new light weights coming onto the market through to the traditional heavy weights. Some owners are more interested in using their vehicle to get to out of the way places rather than the extreme four wheel driving offered by some clubs, although we are yet to meet a four wheel driver who doesn't like a bit of a challenge. We are family friendly and we encourage you to bring your children along. 

 

What do we do?
Most of our trips are suitable for all 4WD's to attend. While almost all of our trips involve four wheel driving, often this is so we can go sight seeing, bush walking or just relaxing, whatever takes your fancy. Trips can vary anywhere from a day close to Sydney, a weekend or long weekend, or even extended trips of up to a month. We even have purely social outings, like ten pin bowling!

 

What do you need?
Some people who want to try 4 wheel driving think that, before you can even start, you need to fit out your vehicle with bull bars, winches, high lift jacks, bull bags and any other of the hundreds of accessories that the after market industry has come up with. We do not expect you to have anything when you start except yourself and a 4WD, not even recovery gear, although we do expect you to get some basic recovery gear within a reasonable time. Everything else can wait until you have had time to decide what gear fits your needs and your budget. 
Our weekend trips usually involve camping out, so you will need a tent and a sleeping bag or something along those lines. As with recovery gear, if you are short of something there is bound to be someone who can help out.

 

Training?
Training courses are run as required and in between we coach people on our regular trips. If a trip is going to be particularly hard or unsuitable for the inexperienced, attendees will be notified beforehand so they can make their own decision, no one is asked to go somewhere if they feel they or their vehicle are not equipped for the conditions. We also run training courses in CPR & Emergency First Aid, Night Driving (Off Road), Sand Driving, Basic Navigation 1 (Maps) and Basic Navigation 2 (GPS). There are currently more courses are being developed they include; Driver Training (Intermediate), Driver Training (Advanced), Bush Skills, and Advanced Vehicle Recovery.
