We enjoy 4wd’ing without actively seeking extreme conditions.
We are a responsible club and take care of the environment and our cars as they are also our daily drives.
However sometimes track conditions can become extreme following rain, so it is handy to know how to handle these situations and get yourself out, or when to quit and wait for the tracks to dry out. The training we provide can help you with this.
A lot of our members own caravans and depending on the type, can take them off road to varying extents.
Even a normal dirt road can become treacherous if wet, so knowing how to handle your car in 4wd can assist your towing capability and ensure you can get to some out of the way spots others may only dream about.
Our club runs three types of trips each year, these are :
Day trips, which are generally close to Adelaide and good for beginners or just a fun day out
Weekend trips, which can be up to 5 days long, which allows us to venture further afield and access better tracks and campsites. These can be intra or interstate
Long trips, which can be anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 or more months, and will generally be interstate to some iconic destinations, such as Cape York, the Kimberley, the Victorian High Country, to name a few.
Most definitely, one of the advantages of joining a 4wd club such as ours is that you have access to qualified trainers who can teach you the correct way to drive your vehicle in a number of different terrains that you may encounter in our big Continent.
Yes our club has a number of accredited trainers that will provide training and guidance in the correct and safe use of your four wheel drive in a number of terrains, including sand, rocks, hills and if available, mud and water.
They will also provide training in correct and safe recovery techniques should your vehicle become stuck.
Joining fees are currently $35 as a once off Fee. In addition you will pay an annual membership fee, which is currently $80 for a full year.
If you join part way through our financial year (January – December) you will pay a pro rata amount depending on which month you join. For example, in 2019, if you were to join in April you would pay 9/12ths of $80 ie. $60, plus the $35 once off joining fee = $95
